Announcing our 2020 Fly Pinays Awards!

Leadership, Education, Activism, and Dialogue (LEAD) Filipino needs help finding our “2020 Fly Pinay of the Year” that models our organization’s core values of civic engagement and leadership across Fil Am communities.

LEAD Filipino’s Annual Fly Pinays was established in 2017. Nestled in the South Bay Area, and held every March during Women’s Herstory Month, the Annual Fly Pinays Leadership Summit gathers ~200 Filipina women and college students in shared experiences related to sisterhood and mentorship. Featuring women leaders from across all sectors and industries and students from nearly all of the colleges in the region, the Annual Fly Pinays celebrates Pinay stories, achievements, and positivity. LEAD Filipino will be hosting its 4th Annual Fly Pinays Leadership Summit at Mission College on Saturday, March 14th, 2020 and will be introducing our 2020 Annual Fly Pinays Awards!
