Event description
Panel Event: Perspective from the Philippines

About this Event

New Zealand has seen an exponential growth in its population of Filipino migrants. Despite this, there has still been a lack of representation for this fast-growing cultural group. The panel for this event is consisted of notable Filipinos who have gained success and achievements in their respective fields. They will be speaking generally about the plight of migrants, and more specifically about the challenges they have had to overcome to achieve what they have now achieved. This is a success story of migrants.

Panel:

• MP Paulo Garcia (Law and Politics: First Filipino MP of the New Zealand Parliament)

• Ambassador Gary Domingo (Leadership: Philippine Embassy)

• Queen’s Awardee Anita Mansell (Performing Arts: Filifest Dance Group)

• Matilde Figuracion (Entrepreneurship: Grill Republic)

For non – Filipinos, this speaking event is a great way to gain an insight into migrant groups’ experiences in trying to make an impact in New Zealand and the journey to success.
