The Filipino Young Professionals of Washington DC (FYP-DC) invites you to attend our 2017 Leadership Conference 'Unite, Magakisa' at Georgetown University's Healey Family Student Center (see directions and parking information below) this Saturday, Sept. 30, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

FYP-DC aims to elevate the Filipino-American professional to achieve success in their career. The ability to collaborate is crucial for career success, and this is why FYP-DC will host its first-ever conference to discuss the importance of working together. 

Our conference theme, ‘Magkaisa’ (Unite), stems from the idea that we need to work together as a team to reach our goals. The combined effect of a team is greater than the sum of individual efforts. When individuals unite together it creates a diverse environment leading to enhance creativity and decision-making. The collaboration will lead to an increased success in our ability to problem solve in an efficient and effective manner. We believe this can only happen if we unite, together.

On-site registration will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m., followed by opening ceremony and lunch at 11:00 a.m. After lunch, we will have six different professional development workshops and panels of varying career fields (hospitality, entrepreneurship, medical, storytelling, etc.) For our closing ceremony, we will have a live performance from spoken word, song-writing duo SomeNever ReallyGet (SNRG).
