Although the country has come a long way in breaking stereotypes regarding women and men, specifically when it comes to potential and capabilities, the country still needs to break a lot of barriers before a healthy equilibrium is reached. 

Some might believe that this is impossible to achieve, however, many continue to work towards it. And one of them is Globe, known for being one of the country’s top providers when it comes to telecommunication services. 

To show its solidarity and support to females all over for this year’s International Women’s Day (March 8) and National Women’s Month, Globe is honoring the outstanding women leaders and employees that have played significant roles in its success today. 

And they are the following: 

  • Rizza Maniego-Eala, Chief Finance Officer and Chief Risk Officer 
  • Issa Guevarra-Cabreira – Chief Commercial Officer 
  • Rebecca Eclipse – Chief Transformation & Operations Officer and Chief Customer Experience Officer 
  • Yoly Crisanto – Chief Sustainability Officer and Corporate Communications SVP 
  • Atty. Irish Salandanan-Almeida – Chief Privacy Officer 
  • Atty. Marisalve Ciocson-Co – Chief Compliance Officer 
  • Rosalin Palacol – Chief Audit Executive

“At Globe, we value talent because we believe it is our people that will keep our Circle of Happiness going. We are fortunate to have many female leaders and employees who possess the qualities necessary to carry out Globe’s mission and vision to keep us moving forward,” Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu shared.

This belief is also what led the company to implement a Board Diversity Policy in 2017, a measure that promotes and observes diverse membership among its directors. This paved the way for Saw Phaik Hwa to hold the role of Independent Director and chair of the Board Risk Oversight Committee in Globe, a position she’s been holding since 2021. 

Globe also paid homage to the eight women of Globe Group Leaders, who’ve helped in developing the telco company into a digital solutions platform. 

  • Martha Sazon – one of the people who were instrumental in making GCash the country’s leading e-wallet platform, which now boasts a 55 million user base. 
  • Minette Navarrete – a well-respected figure in Kickstart Venture, Globe’s wholly-owned corporate venture capital firm.
  • Mharicar Castillo-Reyes – the one who led Asticom, Globe’s shared services unit, to significant revenue growth at a CAGR of 33% since 2015.
  • Cindy Toh – steered PureGo, Globe’s e-grocery collaboration with Pure Gold, to a 75% growth in sales since January 2021.
  • Gretchen Largoza – who grew AdSpark, the digital and mobile marketing solutions provider of Globe, to ₱1.2-billion in revenues.
  • Denise Seva – who guided LIVE MNL, Globe’s production and events management arm, to become the partner of choice for on-ground and digital events, especially during the pandemic shift.
  • Joan Penaflorida – the person behind Yondu’s growth into one of the country’s top IT Managed Services providers. 
  • Jasmin Montelibano – the one who grew ECPaym which now manages over 89,000 general trade retail base.

According to Globe, it will continue to uphold diversity and gender equality in its work environments. 

And as a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), it promises to ensure that no employee is discriminated against, based on age, gender, marital status, personal beliefs, religion and spiritual practices, political affiliation, and sexual orientation.

Globe is committed to 10 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that support UN SDG No. 5, which gives equal opportunities to women for leadership. Currently, forty-six percent of its over 8,000-strong workforce are women – and it aims to further improve this number in the years to come.
