Jollibee Group at Global PHTimeIsNow Forum in NYC

Beth Dela Cruz, Jollibee Group President for North America Asian Brands will be part of Global Filipino trailblazers who will take centerstage at PHTimeIsNow: A Time and Place to Connect with Fellow Filipino Trailblazers. The prestigious summit will be held on October 28, 2023 at the Harvard Club of New York City in NYC. 

"I am honored to share our Jollibee Group story at the historic Harvard Club NYC for the PHTimeIsNow forum," said Beth, President for Jollibee Group North America Asian Brands (Jollibee, Chowking, and Red Ribbon). "Being on stage with accomplished Filipinos like Bobby Lopez and Loida Lewis inspires us to work even harder to share Filipino pride here in the United States and around the world." 

Dela Cruz joins the ranks of renowned trailblazers such as Bobby Lopez, Double EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, & Tony) award-winning composer for Frozen, Coco, Avenue Q, and Book of Mormon; and Loida Lewis, philanthropist, businesswoman, and author of "Why Should Guys Have All the Fun?"

Lopez was born in Manhattan to a Fil-Am family and attended Yale University before writing songs for local theatress. He received his first EGOT in 2013, at the age of 39, making him the youngest individual to win all four awards and the first Asian to do so. He received his second Oscar in 2018, becoming the only person in history to obtain double EGOT, making him a legend in the fields of television, music, film, and threater. 

For Lewis, who is a practicing attorney both in New York and the Philippines, she was the first Asian and Filipino woman to pass the New York bar without having studied in law in the United States. She also served 10 years as General Attorney in the US Immigration and Naturalization Service (currently U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services) and won her discrimination action against INS in 1979. 

Karen Davila, one of the Philippines' most celebrated news anchor will host the summit. 

PHTimeIsNow was launched in June 2018 to create a platform for Global Filipino Trailblazers, Mentors, and Changemakers to share their personal stories of learning, success, and growth in hopes of helping the next generation to reach greater heights in their personal and professional lives.
