Three women leaders share how they prioritize diversity and inclusion to further foster empowerment in the workplace.

For any organization, no matter the size or scale, it’s leadership that decides whether or not the organization achieves the best outcomes and goes to enjoy success—more so with an inclusive approach where everybody’s knowledge, skills, and experience are utilized. Women leaders in COCOLIFE know this truth and build upon it to drive the company to triumph. 

From planning and ideating through decision-making and problem-solving, COCOLIFE’s Independent Director Carolina G. Diangco; Senior Vice-President and Chief Actuary Trinna Bernardino; and Senior Vice-President and Head of Group Marketing Maricar Mangulabnan, take pride in their individual leadership styles.

The Pedagogical Prime Mover

Now an incumbent member of COCOLIFE Board of Directors, Carolina Diangco has long been a distinguished leader. But like any ordinary employee, she started her career as a rank-and-file employee. “Then I was a supervisor, then a manager, then a department head, until I was elected as a director in 1998,” she recalls. “I believe it was my persistent desire for continuous improvement that became my leverage.”

The Pedagogical Prime Mover

So, be that through formal education or field experience, Carolina made it to a point that she learned—every step of the way. “You should be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and make them your opportunities for growth,” shares COCOLIFE’s longest serving female board member. “Regardless if you’re a man or a woman, you should develop confidence in the areas where your knowledge and ideas are valuable.”

“In COCOLIFE, we encourage and fully support our people who want to pursue higher studies. They get to hone their innate abilities. So, hesitancy is replaced with assertiveness, and self-doubt with new found self-assurance, both of which are desirable qualities that one needs to acquire to succeed in their field of expertise,” she further explains.
