#ChooseToChallenge in the Philippine Property Sector – Philippines

March 30 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM PST

- Free

Join us on Tuesday, March 30 at 4:00 pm (Manila local time) for an event to celebrate the women on the leading edge of green buildings and gender equality in the Philippines.

Last month, the Philippines topped the Women in Business 2021 Global Ranking by Grant Thorton, with the highest proportion of female executives holding senior management positions (48%) among the 29 countries surveyed. However, the Philippine real estate and construction industry remain largely male dominated.

To celebrate International Women’s Day and the National Women’s month in the Philippines, the webinar brings together the Filipinas who #ChooseToChallenge long-standing norms in the Philippine property sector and champion green buildings:

  • Carmen Jimenez-Ong, CEO, Menarco Development
  • Emma Imperial, CEO, Imperial Homes
  • Gie Garcia, Managing Director, NEO Office
  • Julia Abad, Executive Director, PBCWE
  • Sam Pobre, Sustainability Manager, Arthaland

The event will be hosted by Michelle Farrell, IFC’s Senior Operations Officer, and messages of empowerment will be shared by Farida Lasida Adji, the EDGE Regional Lead in EAP, and Jean-Marc Arbogast, IFC’s Country Manager in the Philippines.
