Provocative Conversations: SUCCESS. SIGNIFICANCE. RELEVANCE. in Future Thinking. The urgency of using our success collectively for social, economic, and political change
The 2018 Filipina Summit theme speaks to the urgency of using collectively the success achieved by each awardee in their professional lives by collaborating with FWN in developing new paradigms for significant actions that are relevant to today’s society. These are the questions to ponder.

SUCCESS: your leadership story.

SIGNIFICANCE: amplifying your influence; publicly supporting or suggesting an idea, a development, or a way of doing something.

RELEVANCE: being connected; the degree to which something is related or useful to what is happening or being talked about or important to today's issues: the impression made by an idea, cultural movement, social group; meaning roughly 'relevance to social concerns', such as racial equality, gender equality, equal pay, poverty, social justice, world hunger, world economic development.

Fear and shame are barriers to success according to Dominique Moisi, author of The Geopolitics of Emotion - culture of fear
- culture of humiliation
- culture of hope
These cultures are reshaping the world. Power, Money and Culture

The gepolitics of diaspora: issues of diaspora and hybridity, both within geography and in cultural studies tend to celebrate the potential of the hybrid and diasporic to transcend essentialist notions of identity and subjectivity. Sean Carter argues that these approaches often fail to pay sufficient attention to two particular aspects of the diaspora experience: firstly, the geographical specificities of particular diasporas, and secondly, the ways in which essentialist modes of being are often reproduced within diasporic discourse.

How can FWN reposition its advocacy for social, economic and political change? How can FWN  Members maintain its relevance as the world is rapidly turning? How can FWN and its Members become major players in future thinking?

FORMAT:  Co-Moderators will ask each conversationalist to state her thoughts on the theme for 2 minutes.

DISCUSSION FORMAT:  Filipina Women's Network uses a fishbowl discussion format ala "The View" U.S. television program.  Instead of speaking directly to the audience, we encourage speakers to have a "conversation" among themselves with the audience "listening in".  A volunteer will collect audience questions on index cards and will hand these questions to the Moderator so they can be incorporated into the conversation.  We have found the fishbowl to be fun, engaging, and does not disrupt the conversation flow as well as being time efficient especially in managing duplicate questions.

Conversationalists are encouraged to look outside the traditional world of work and business and at the broader issues and external forces (STEEP: social, technological, economic, environmental, political) that influence the workplace and the Filipino worldwide community today and its impact in the next ten years. Looking to the future, outside-in thinking. The Moderator/s will reserve 10 minutes of the allotted time so attendees will be able to synthesize the issues and/or comments raised by the conversationalists and can have a discussion among themselves. We will then ask each group to voluntarily report back with a 1-2 minute Action Statement if there's time.

AUDIENCE ACTION: Group conversations on issues raised by the speakers. Strategies and actions? 2 minutes for each Group Report.
