News Releases

The Foundation for Filipina Women's Network has named Husch Blackwell senior associate Natalie Garcia Lashinsky to receive the prestigious Global FWN100™ “Most Influential Filipina Women in the World” award. Lashinsky, based in the firm’s The Link virtual office, is a litigator in the firm’s Technology, Manufacturing & Transportation industry group. She focuses her practice on toxic tort, general business disputes, real estate claims, and labor and employment matters.

The Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network recognizes women of Philippine ancestry who are changing the face of leadership in the global workplace, having reached status for outstanding work in their respective fields and are acknowledged for their contributions to society, femtorship and legacy. Lashinsky was selected from an outstanding field of nominees from around the world in the category of Policymaker and Visionary, which recognizes Filipina women leaders who have demonstrated exceptional business acumen combined with a forward-looking vision in the development or influencing of policies, campaigns or laws that impact business, industry, and society.

“The Global FWN100™ awardees are innovators and thought leaders, dynamic entrepreneurs, practitioners, and public service advocates, who have moved through the ranks in the public and private sectors. They are magnificent women doing extraordinary work trailblazing for the next generation leaders,” said Marily Mondejar, Founder and CEO of the Foundation for Filipina Women’s Network.

“Natalie is now a valued 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," added Georgitta Puyat, FWN president and Board Chair of the Philippine Orchard Corporation. "The Summit is where smart women share their challenges and secrets to their success. The 2007-2021 awardees’ leadership stories have become part of the largest recorded Filipina women diaspora in modern times."

“It is a great honor for me to be affiliated with Global FWN100™ Award, and to be placed in such distinguished ranks: Filipinas across the globe who have led and changed their community and industry. It is my privilege to continue this work in the legal community by servicing our clients, and representing my community,” Lashinsky said.

Lashinsky will receive the Global FWN100™ Award on September 29, 2021 at the Awards Gala during the 17th Annual Filipina Leadership Global Summit in San Francisco.
