It's but right to celebrate women empowerment not only locally within our country but also globally as all women across countries deserve to be praised. The ever changing world paves way to empowered women around the globe and it's about time they get the recognition they deserve.
Smart Asset Managers (SAM) is among those that recognizes the importance of women as an equal and significant contributor of society as it held a discussion on Women Empowerment a few days ago featuring notable female personalities.
I will support women empowerment to enhance their role in decision making for ourselves and for our planet. Who knows, maybe they'll lead us to a better future.
We do need to hear from our women as their thoughts and beliefs are worthy to be heard not just by their fellow women but by every gender.
I feel so overwhelmed and humbled listening to the female speakers. They are outstandingly formidable and remarkably accomplished women in their respective chosen field of expertise.
They may not yet be prominently huge and established names in their chosen field, but I am actually so far off from what they have done in their chosen careers. Our choices for career or way of living greatly depends on our priorities and perceptions, and we should not degrade whatever choices they made for themselves. Each one should be respected for their decisions in life.
And it is with great humility that I thank SAM for giving us the opportunity to be listen to these talks about women empowerment.
It is quite an honor and I am truly privileged to be able to participate.
This virtual event was launched this year, during the Women’s Month of March, to promote women empowerment.
It could have been a more celebrated event if not because of the pandemic. Thus this was held online within the safety of everyone's home or offices, but we still found significant relevance to appreciate. Life does need to continue inspite of the lockdown....may it be for the men or women who are both making extra effort amid what we call the new normal.
Grateful that this event was launched even during the pandemic, and we feel that there was no better time, because the health crisis should never stop us from celebrating the importance of women in our society as valuable contributors also in entrepreneurship. Everyone continues with its quest or search to incubate startups or micropreneurs to help all industries bounce back during these trying times.
Being an Enabler, by way of the opportunity being given by SAM, in this particular industry is relevant now, more than ever. Online is after all a very convenient way to transact and do business or earn rewards or profits from our hard-earned money especially now when even jobs and businesses are struggling.
We also believe that the pandemic is the best time for women to shine in every aspect, even while at home…because now, women are made to wear additional hats due to this pandemic… from home chef to a homeschooling teacher, house cleaner, home nurse, etc… while juggling work from home to leading our own industries.
We are urging all Filipinos to participate in advocacies promoting women empowerment. They are not competing against men but but combining efforts towards a more fruitful and thriving tomorrow.
