Human rights forum set



Women’s and children’s rights will be at the forefront of the Washington, D.C.-based Virtual Lecture Event on Cybercrime on Human Rights Day Friday.

Among the leading lecturers is Lily Tan Lim, PhD. Esq. She’s one of the leading woman humanitarian executive directors of the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry Inc. (FFCCCII), and is a Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) Special Advisor (Taiwan and China).

The event is set at 10 a.m. EDT, on 10 December, commemorating the United Nations’ Global Human Rights 1948 campaign to end violence against women and girls.

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

Hosting the event is Courage Without Measure, in which Dr. Lim is a volunteer advisory council executive chairman, in cooperation with Georgetown Co’s chief executive, Caroll Salas Arevalo, a prominent hybrid fashion designer and manufacturer based in Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

Lim and Arevalo shared a common vision in philanthropy that started when the latter raised the prospect of producing an exclusive film documentary project about the cold case and unjustified Maguindanao Massacre, where 57 women (32 were visiting journalists) and girls were killed and buried on the sideways during Thanksgiving Day week in 2009.

The Covid-19 pandemic, however, hindered its production but the two turned to mentoring advocacy dedicated to women in leadership programs instead.

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

Amid the pandemic, Arevalo took advantage of seeking forums hosted by America’s four top East Coast ivy league universities during the beginning of Zoom meetings, as Covid-19 dealt with major labor crisis targeting women as victims.

Some 120 countries have recorded a rise in abuses during the implementation of homeschooling while major struggles in double standards in the workplaces also remained, it was found out.
