PHILIPPINE EMBASSY ENCOURAGES FILIPINA YOUTH TO LEAD EMPOWERED LIVES IN WOMEN'S WORKSHOP
18 April 2023, CANBERRA - The Embassy of the Philippines in Canberra organized a gender and development workshop for select Filipina youth in Canberra on 15 April 2023 entitled “Leading an Empowered Life: A Workshop on Women’s Success”. In her remarks, the Philippine Ambassador to Australia H.E. Ma. Hellen De La Vega encouraged the youth to take action towards promoting gender equality in their communities and beyond.
The workshop aimed to foster a sense of camaraderie and solidarity among participants and allowed them to examine definitions of success as a Filipina. The participants were inspired to seek an environment that would allow them to learn and thrive and to invest in self-education and self-discovery.
The workshop, which was delivered by Certified High Performance Coach Dominique Narciso Kim, provided participants with tools and resources to improve their skills for professional and personal development in order to take on leadership roles, opportunities, and benefits towards maximizing their full potential. -END-
