Innovator and Thought Leader Award Goes to Enriquez
To be formally awarded on 23 August 2016 during the 13th Filipina Leadership Global Summit in Cebu, Enriquez is being recognized for breaking ground in the field of education by initiating and implementing a comprehensive vision of inclusive education that seeks to improve the lives of the students. Her visionary leadership of Fatima University has transformed the delivery of education to their academic community by ensuring that quality standards are in place and that all stakeholders have developed a paradigm shift towards customer satisfaction. Today, the University supports over 3,000 scholars a year, and consistently produces top-rankers in professional board exams in programs such as Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Medical Technology, Dentistry, and more. With her at the helm, she has initiated and transformed the university through various innovative programs that enhance the students’ learning experience while delivering quality education at an affordable cost. With the support of the Board of Trustees, the university now operates five institutional campuses in Valenzuela, Quezon City, Antipolo, Pampanga and Nueva Ecija . The international academic linkages and intensive industry linkages established have opened up channels for Fatima students to globalize their skills and learning. These are but a few of Enriquez’ achievements, of which more are to come as this story develops.
“The Global FWN100TM women… are inspiring examples of women doing extraordinary work who will motivate our youth and future leaders,” says Josephine Romero, Chair of the Global FWN100TM Worldwide Search and Selection Committee. “They were selected based on the size and scope of their positions, influence in their industries and their communities, board affiliations and other leadership roles.”
FWN Founder & CEO Marilyn Monderjar adds, “Dr. Carol Enriquez is now a partner in helping FWN develop the Filipina community’s pipeline of qualified leaders to increase the odds that some will rise to the “president” position in all sectors of the global economy.”
