Pinays group Feb 2024

On February 25, 2024, the ladies of Pinays Manitoba met to commemorate in advance this year's International Women's Day (IWD) – a special day celebrated worldwide on March 8th every year to honour the achievements and contributions of women. IWD is also a day to raise awareness about gender equality and women's rights.

During the meeting, the Pinays discussed plans for its annual major event, the Pinays Manitoba Trailblazers Recognition Awards. It will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2024, 6 p.m. at the Viscount Gort Hotel, 1670 Portage Avenue in Winnipeg.

"This year 2024, as we celebrate our 8th anniversary, our Trailblazer Awards event will be more special with our Trailblazers dinner and dance celebration on the eve of Mother’s Day." said Pinays Manitoba President Winnie Navarro.

This year also marks the groups' eight year recognizing Pinay trailblazers. They are Filipino women of all ages that have made outstanding contributions to the local Filipino community, Manitoba, and the global community. By doing this, the Pinays aim to develop role models for the local diverse community, most especially for the next generation of Filipino women.
