Women’s group holds online masterclass on cybercrime on 10 December



Women’s and children’s rights will be discussed in a Virtual Masterclass on Cybercrime on 10 December, Human Rights Day.

The event is organized by Courage Without Measure, a group of women based in the United States, United Arab Emirates and the Philippines, led by Dr. Lily Tan Lim, a director of the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII) and a Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) special advisor (Taiwan and China), in cooperation with Georgetown & Co. chief executive officer Caroll Salas Arevalo, a prominent hybrid fashion designer and manufacturer based in Washington, D.C.

Main guest speaker Jonathan Arena, CISSP, ITIL, CSM, and White Clay Technology president and founder, will be joined by other resource persons.

Lim and Arevalo share a common vision in philanthropy that started when the latter raised the prospect of producing a documentary on the Maguindanao Massacre, where 57 women (32 were visiting journalists) and girls were murdered and buried in a mass grave in 2009.

The Covid-19 pandemic hindered its production. Lim and Arevalo instead turned to mentoring advocacy dedicated to women in leadership programs.

Arevalo also focused her campaign on excellence in education for children with zero tolerance against the lack of digital connectivity in marginalized and underserved communities.

Some 120 countries have recorded a rise in domestic abuse during the implementation of online classes, while major struggles in double standards in the workplaces remained.

Also invited to the event is Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) Chair and Resident Representative Wilfredo Fernandez.

Courage Without Measure’s Masterclass on Cybercrime series is part of a continuing education program for women and girls after topics of disinformation highlighted 180 lectures, forums, and summits, with the most serious topics pushing for emergency reforms on women empowerment, diversity and inclusion.
