LINGAYEN – Urbiztondo Vice Mayor Marilyn Sanglay-Sison was cited by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) for winning the Pinay Power Summit award given by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines.
The SP passed Provincial Resolution No. 443-2018 congratulating Sison.
Sison, who serves as the provincial chairperson of the Local Councils of Women (LCW) Pangasinan, was among the five Pinay Power Summit awardees in the country.
Sison received the award during the JCI-Area One 3rd Council Meeting held on July 21 in Tarlac City.
“The award garnered by Vice Mayor Sison is a testament of her strong commitment in championing the rights and causes of women and other vulnerable sectors,” the provincial resolution reads.
Under the leadership of Sison, the LCW Pangasinan adopted an advocacy to help the marginalized sector, particularly the women from Indigenous Peoples communities and coastal areas in partnership with the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, and JCI Lingayen Liberation II.
The LCW Pangasinan is also the organizer of Gayak Pangasinan “Women Leaders for a Cause,” a benefit social event which is the largest gathering of women leaders in the province. (PIO/MGNO)
