Four women in the fields of education, tourism and financial literacy were honored as Outstanding Women Leaders (OWLs) during the Kababaihan Festival program held at the PFVR gymnasium last Friday.

With the theme, “We make change work for women,” and subtheme, “Responsive women; effecting change in governance and community development,” city officials led by Mayor Mauricio Domogan, Rep. Mark Go, guest speaker Elvira Echauz-Angara, city councilors and other women’s groups lauded the chosen women leaders.

Rosalila A. Ocyaden and Brenda M. Cariño are public school teachers who devote resources, time and effort to improve students’ lives, parents’ and the community.

Ocyaden heads the San Vicente High School with programs Oplan Students at Risk of Dropping Out (ardo), and Oplan Students at Risk of Failures dealing with students’ academic problems, and one that deals with educational assistance for elementary pupils. She prioritizes women and girls in her programs.

Cariño is the principal of the thousand-strong Baguio City High School and member-board secretary of the City National Association of Public Secondary School Heads. An active scoutmaster and wife of an Episcopalian priest, she is involved in programs for the empowerment of women, both in scouting and in the church.

Raquel F. Verzosa, a businesswoman in the world of tourism teaches marketing, communications, customer service and people skills to improve employment opportunity, which she shared to 120 Typhoon Ompong survivors. Together with family members, she is a staunch supporter of programs for those suffering from depression and mental illness, and serves as adviser, moderator and caregiver to turn negativity into positive awareness and understanding.

In the field of financial literacy, Dinah R. Dumayas excels in encouraging individuals re-evaluate spending habits and consider financial savings. Among her clients in the city are street sweepers, miners and persons with disabilities. Her success in insurance and financial investments enables her to share through medical, dental and outreaches since 1997. She is also responsible for building churches in Baguio including the 7th Day Adventist in Bokawkan, with scholarships for indigent primary and secondary students.
