Why You Should Screen This Film With Your Company or Organization Today

Intel Philippines and FIT-Ed, in collaboration with the Coalition for Better Education, are inviting you to watch a special screening of “Girl Rising”, a ground breaking feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform families. 



About Girl Rising

Narrated by the beautiful voices of Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Freida Pinto, the movie tells the stories of nine girls from different parts of the world who face arranged marriages, child slavery, and other heartbreaking injustices.
  • There are 66 million girls are out of school worldwide. 
  • 150 million girls are victims of sexual violence and half of all sexual assaults victimize girls under 15 years old. 
  • The number 1 cause of death in girls aged 15-19 is childbirth

These are stunning figures provided to us by UNESCO.

The film which is shown world-wide presents the remarkable stories of nine girls around the world. The film uses powerful storytelling to deliver a simple, critical truth: Educate Girls and you will change the World.

The special screening of Girl Rising was held last February 7, at the Cebu Normal University and since you most likely missed it you may host your own screening at home with your family, your university as part of Social and Economic Studies or in your office as part of your HR gender sensitivity program.

For more information, email CBE at admin@cbephils.net and they will be glad to make arrangements.

#JayseeBlabs About Corporate Sponsorship on Women Empowerment Initiatives

Feminism and gender equality has been a positive catalyst to our modern society creating a world a better place for women, members of the third sex and the marginalized. We've heard about the recent brouhaha created by the sexist remarks of the newly minted Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella who said that women who do not ask for a raise will be rewarded with good karma, an PR disaster that broke the whole tech world's golden gates for all the world to see. It is a cutthroat business world out there  reminiscent of fabled battlefields, that if you are too are too meek then you will not survive an industry run by vicious men and the CEO's comments reflect the current state of the world today, that there is a great divide because of the pains brought about by ancient practices and honored by different cultures who discriminate and looked lowly at women.

At a milestone event organized by UN Women and the UN Global Compact in Serbia, 12 CEOs signed the Statement of Support for the Women's Empowerment Principles last March. The private sector champions are: Avon, Actavis, Banca Intesa, B92 Media, Carlsberg, Coca Cola Hellenic Group Serbia, Deloitte, Erste Bank, IBM, Serbia Post, Transnafta and VIP Mobile. Many had already begun to implement a range of initiatives to empower women, such as to develop and track the leadership potentials of female employees, HR practices that protect women's interests, sponsoring women and LGBT events, offering flexible work schedules and recognizing the status of working parents.

As a business leader, you should start to take the cue of those who signed up for this treaty and in your own small ways, join in the revolution to make the private sector one of the best places to work and live for.
