Senator Flordeliz (Gigi) Osler, Jordy Wyant, Larissa Pagdato, Andrea Macasaet, and Cheryl Dizon-Reynante.

As the Filipino community in Manitoba expands, so does the presence of Pinays or Filipino women making positive impacts across diverse fields in our society. Pinay is a word that refers to a girl or woman of Filipino descent.

The Pinays Manitoba Trailblazers Recognition Awards took place on May 11, 2024, at the Viscount Gort Hotel. This annual event, now in its eighth year, is organized by Pinays Manitoba Inc., showcasing their ongoing dedication to celebrating women who demonstrate leadership, inspiration, and motivation through the Pinays Manitoba Trailblazers initiative. More than 50 members of Pinays Manitoba collaborated to host the evening, which drew over 250 guests to honour the remarkable achievements of Filipino women.
