Ten exemplary women to be feted at Human Nature’s 1st Pinay & Proud Summit
Inspiring young millennials to go beyond ‘snap-worthy’ adventures
Human Nature is teaming up with De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde for the 1st Pinay & Proud Summit. Themed “Your Goodness Shines”, the event will be held at Benilde’s School of Design and Arts Theater on October 19.
The summit is part of Human Nature’s longstanding campaign to highlight the lifework of Filipino women from all walks of life. This year, Pinay & Proud aims to inspire young people to serve the least while pursuing excellence.
Abi Mapua-Cabanilla, Director of Benilde’s Hub of Innovation For Inclusion (HiFi), shares that Pinay & Proud resonates with many of Benilde’s institutional thrusts of academic excellence that contributes to inclusive nation building. Benilde believes that the school is the most logical place to raise compassionate, enlightened, and empowered citizens who shall become powerful agents for social change.
HiFi is a testimony of Benilde’s commitment for the academe to create potent social impact. HiFi is an innovation space for social good. We believe in writing a new narrative and system of development that will work towards a triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit.
Ten women who have made significant contributions in the fields of environmental protection, poverty alleviation and education will be honored at the Summit.
