Kicks-off Women's Month in the Queen City of the South
WOMEN POWER CONQUERS CEBU: Globe Business fetes female executives in the province for a day of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation

Recognizing the role of female leaders as a driving force in local industries and the economy as a whole, Globe Business recently launched in Cebu an exclusive empowerment program for women in the corporate world.

 The enterprise ICT arm of Globe Telecom recently activated its campaign, “You are Wonderful,” in the Queen City of the South geared at appreciating the efforts of female executives from its clientele in establishing a healthy work-life integration amidst their very busy schedules.

“The Philippines continues to be a great place for women in the corporate world. A recent global study revealed that the country is sixth in the world and second in Asia to have women hold senior management roles in enterprises,” pointed out by Globe Business Head of Marketing Charmaine Bautista-Pamintuan, who added that, “since more and more Filipinas are becoming leaders of enterprises, there is also a growing need to empower them so they can strike a balance between career and family life.”

This nationwide program was launched last March 1, in time for the observance of the International Women’s Day.  The first leg was kicked off in Cebu — the center of trade, commerce and industry in Central Visayas and one of the country's most thriving economies. It is also acknowledged as a one of the key cities championing women power in the country. Close to 100 women executives from the province were exclusively invited to the Crimson Resorts and Spa treated to a day of good food, rejuvenation, and self-reflection. 

Attendees were treated to pampering sessions of body treatments and meditative activities, followed by a gourmet gastronomic experience of artisan confectioneries from Cebu’s celebrated chocolate boutique.  

After the physical rejuvination and a delightful chocolate treat , the lady executives were given an inspirational talk by renowned author, TV host and wellness guru Cory Quirino, who talked about the woman as a “power center.” Elaborating on the 5Ds of empowering the mind, body and spirit: Desire, Determination, Drive, Discipline And Delight, she also encouraged the participants to make a covenant with themselves  to embrace wellness, love more and bring out the “wonderful” in them.

The day was capped off by a sumptuous beachfront dinner, where lucky participants won for themselves hotel overnight stays and buffet vouchers.  During the night cap, Bautista-Pamintuan announced that the gathering is the first in a series of engagements that will be rolled out nationwide to celebrate, inspire and empower female executives as Globe Business will continue to work closely with them in creating a wonderful ICT landscape and businesses in the country.

Globe Business Senior Vice President for Enterprise Group Nikko Acosta, acknowledged the program as “a venue to promote work-life balance for women leaders in enterprises. We want to see a wonderful new culture emerge, one that evokes compassion and balance in the workplace,” adding that Globe Business aims to see more fully-integrated female professionals, especially those who balance multiple roles in their lives.
