Words by: Aye Ubaldo

The sun’s out and it is glorious. The perfect invitation to women all over the metro to bask in the sun’s powerful rays to celebrate Global Women Who Rule at Enderun Extension at Capitol Commons, Estancia Mall, Pasig City. Join the 3rd GWWR Summit today and hear inspiring stories from women all over the world. It’s a sisterhood that’s uniquely its own.

Created at the start of the pandemic by Apple Esplana-Manansala, President of The New Channel, and Founder of GWWR, the movement is growing strong, increasing membership and getting support from many sectors.

A collective of strong women from across industries and demographics, Global Women Who Rule is a representation of everything that inspires action, thought leadership and community service. It’s one thing to achieve personal goals, but GWWR extends the path towards sharing, guiding and building dreams.

“GWWR is a powerful platform where women from all walks of life come together every year to share and celebrate their wins in life. It is meant to help lift each other up and showcase God’s everyday miracles. I shared on my health journey crisis and how God can turn things around if only we surrender to His will.” shares Kathy Solis-Davila, GWWR 2021 profile, at the same one of GWWR 2023 jury.

“It takes a village to raise a child they say… It takes a community of empowered women to nurture that village, that’s what I say. Being part of the GWWR community gives us the opportunity to inspire, enable and to help not only our community but multitudes out there who need encouragement and motivation. I am more than honored to have been chosen.” Jenny Wieneke, one of this year’s speakers shared.

LTC. Jan Arceo has this to share as she prepares to speak in the upcoming GWWR event “At a time when the world order is fast evolving and the future seems uncertain, GWWR is a beacon of hope as it focuses a bright spotlight on global Filipinas defining and preparing the world for that future.”

Gladys Rondina Basinillo has this to share about her GWWR experience, being part of the first group of 22 profiles and this year’s jury. “It’s an honour to be part of the Jury that selected the 22 women for the 2023 Global Women Who Rule, a platform that recognizes accomplished Filipinas around the globe. Our growing community is privileged to welcome them, and it will be a whole day of learning and sharing inspiring stories.”

“GWWR has given me an opportunity to see and appreciate what I can contribute not only to my business but importantly to the society. As someone who is based in Ormoc City, it was very empowering to be included in the line-up of profiles. I will always be grateful to GWWR and to Apple to paving the way for me to be included in this community of women” quips Lynie Espiel Bereso, GWWR 2021 Profile and CEO of WELLife Corporation also this year’s sponsor.

“The New Channel team have been working so hard on this. This Summit is a proud product of sweat, tears, and lots of laughter and heartwarming moments. Our flagship movement Global Women Who RULE is here encourage Filipino women to be brave and innovative and we give them a platform to speak up and be heard,” says the prime mover of TNC.

It is 2023, and everyone is outdoors and enjoying being with people IRL. To harness this power, GWWR holds its first hybrid event for the year. The world opening means well for industry in general and the economy. More people outside creates more engagement, and more information means tripling demand.

Says Apple, “We need the interaction onsite. A hug, a personal smile, body language can change the mood for the better, and can lighten up the space so much better than on-cam. Everyone understands that the more direct interaction, the more memorable and compelling it is for the hundreds of attendees that will join physically.”

For online attendees, Apple’s own 24\7 streaming media platform The New Channel is the site. Though Global Women Who RULE is a separate entity from The New Channel, both are connected at the hip with GWWR providing opportunities for meaningful partnerships and programs with brands and media. PuzzleBox BPO, Inc. a business process outsourcing solutions company owner and operated by both Erwin and Apple Manansala also joins in support of the event together with WELLife Corporation with venue partner Enderun Extension.

“We at The New Channel are very proud of our flagship movement Global Women Who RULE. We’re helping GWWR encourage Filipino women to be brave and innovative and we give them a platform to speak up and be heard,” says the President.

This year’s event GWWR Summit on March 25th and is available for viewing anywhere in the country or around the world through TNC’s social media pages via Facebook, Youtube, Linked IN, Twitter and its website.

“We’re here to inspire, to compel women to harness their power and be a vehicle for good. GWWR is a group that can help young girls to start dreaming and work towards achieving goals, and therefore build and strengthen communities,” adds Apple.
