Global Women Who RULE (GWWR)


Words by: Danica Tria

SHE is often held back by gender stereotypes.
Often put at the end of the line, muted, as she starts to question her own capabilities.

But throughout the years, SHE witnessed how amazing people like her strived to establish significant marks and meaningful roles in the society, pushing for limitless innovation and empowering creativity.

By building connections, reaching out to people who share the same vision and expressing her ideas, SHE went global.

And now, SHE is inviting you to join a pivotal movement, celebrating GLOBAL WOMEN WHO RULE with an annual online summit that aims to instill a sense of self-worth and influence social innovation for women and others.

Supported by The New Channel—one of online streaming’s earliest adaptors in the country—, Global Women Who RULE 2023 gathers remarkable Filipino women leaders from all over the world to share inspiring stories, unique experiences and powerful insights that are set to paint the global stage with pink—a color representative of femininity, tenderness, sensitivity, love, and kindness.

While the theme of GWWR’s third installment is #MakeChangeWorkForWomen, the topics and information prepared by the guests are designed to benefit not only the women but also the men who #EmbraceEquity, sharing the same vision to break barriers and support the empowerment of all genders.

Carrying over the pillars that has been serving as the guiding light of Global Women Who RULE for the past 2 years, SHE, the leader, ideator and founder, Apple Esplana-Manansala together with core volunteers, the event continues to inspire and move people here and abroad by REACHING OUT to empowered women, UNITING them for social good, sharing the LOVE, support and acceptance everyone truly deserves and ENCOURAGING each to be better every day. Furthermore, this event recognizes the power of social media by promoting community building and supporting the use of #DigitalForGood.
