“Women Empowerment has always been important to Security Bank as an organization. We make it a point to give back and support women and communities. After all, BetterBanking is also about creating better opportunities for all, and this includes women,” said Ceres Joyce De Jesus, SAVP, Head of Brand and Communications of Security Bank in her acceptance speech.
Since its founding over 69 years ago, Security Bank’s mission has been to enrich lives, empower businesses, and build communities. It has been a partner of the Zonta Club for several years and has supported many of their projects. The Bravo Awards is a principal advocacy project honoring women in various fields of endeavor, while FilipinaZ Fair is an annual fundraising bazaar showcasing products made by women entrepreneurs.
