MANILA — Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan of this city was recognized today Friday (04 Nov 2022) as one of the 2022 Most Influential Filipina Women in the World by Filipina Women’s Network (FWN) during the six-day Filipina Leadership Global Summit at the Dom Pedro Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Most Influential Filipina Woman in the World Award honors Filipina Women who are changing the face of leadership in their local communities.

She was chosen to receive the Policymaker and Visionary Award among the outstanding nominees from ten countries.

This award recognizes Filipina women who had a forward-looking vision toward the development and influence of policies to enrich lives, careers, and businesses.

The Filipina Leadership Global Summit convenes a select group of Filipina women global leaders, influencers, and public figures from the 34 FWN member countries to participate in business meetings, educational sessions, and learning journeys with corporate and community leaders, elected and appointed officials.

The Summit brings together the top and most influential Filipina women business owners and professionals to create a networking pipeline through reciprocal relationships.

Mayor Lacuna-Pangan, who is a physician by profession, expressed her gratitude for the recognition she received as she is a firm believer that “the Mayor of Manila has to be all of these; a leader, an advocate and an influencer to address the numerous and complicated issues and problems confronting the City of Manila.”

She added that the city could implement a transformative change through “clear vision, political will and a team of competent trustworthy bureaucracy.”

Aside from this, as the first female mayor of the city, she would like to address the needs of the vulnerable — the women — in Manila.

Her aim is to help solo parents by creating equal job opportunities that will be posted on the GoManila App.

The Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network (FWN) is the organization for the Most Influential Filipina Women Awardees from 34 countries.

They are nominated by their peers and selected annually by the award selection team of awardees from previous years.

FWN is committed to leveraging its talent pool of accomplished women by publishing their leadership journeys and encouraging their global footprint through projects that benefit their local communities.
