Virginia Teodosio

Obtained her Ph.D. in Political Economy from the University of Sydney (1989), and was awarded a five-year post graduate research scholarship by the same university. Currently sitting as a professor of industrial relations at the UP School of Labor and Industrial Relations, Dr. Teodosio rare brand of scholarship has helped bring out the voices from below since her return in 1988. She is the lead author of Cooperatives, Social Capital and the Shaping of State Transformation (2008), which was funded by UNESCO. Her scholarly advocacies and academic works span from Reconfiguring microfinance and the Third Sector Development in the Philippines (2007), Agricultural Cooperatives and Information Communication Technology in an Emerging Asia (2007), and Women and the World of Work in Asia: Perspectives and Practices (2003), Keeping the Spirit of 1896 Alive: The Cooperative Movement Rising (2003), among others. Her line of work that she does is a milestone of the Philippine cooperative movement - a unique model that can the country can be proud of.

Presently chairing the UP Employees Housing Cooperatives (UPEHCO; she also founded it back in 1990), the housing coop - which she is very much identified with - is now a global movement. UPEHCO will soon develop wellness areas for the working classes. Dr. Teodosio was also the founding Director of the Philippine Cooperative Center in 1996, and was President of the Alliance of Cooperatives. Currently, serving as an adviser to an all-women party-list members, Buklod Filipina, she is also known in her contributions to the philippine women movement. A Presidential appointee, she was the administrator of the Cooperative Development Authority in 2000-2004. She was also a convener of the country's first National Summit and Regional Summits of Women in Cooperatives. In 2001, she was a plenary speaker in a conference on Cooperatives and Social Economy held at the University of Barcelona. Also, she was elected vice-chair of the Network for Development of Agricultural Cooperatives in Asia and the Pacific(NEDAC) in 2003-2005.

Dr. Teodosio is a member of the United Nation's Experts of Cooperatives and represented Asia in a meeting held at New York in April 2009. In addition, she presented a paper on August on the Working Class and Clean Energy for the 15th World Congress for International INdustrial Relations Association, the New World of Work, Organizations, and Employment held at Sydney, AUS. She is also scheduled to present a paper on "The Rise of Worker Cooperatives in the Philippines and their Role in Democratizing the Economy" in Bali, Indonesia this September. She is also working in a project on cyber education and home study targeting the country's 5 million out of the school youth with the support of the Dept. of Education and Culture, The Global News Network, and the cooperative movement. Most recently, Dr. Teodosio has assisted a promising new group of students that aims at furthering the discourse and cause of the Responsibility to Protect (r2p) in the Philippines and the rest of Asia. Through her efforts, international reputation, and academic connections, she was able to link the group to Yale University through the world top expert in genocide studies Dr. Ben Kiernan. R2P a headquartered in Queensland University.

Finally, this June 2010, Dr. Teodosio has been endorsed as a management cooperative expert by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front Central Committee, to reach out to both local and foreign governments and NGOs in seeking assistance in favor of the marginalized tri-people (Muslims, Lumad,, and the Christians) in post-conflict areas in Mindanao.Another worth noting about Dr. Teodosio is her recent project whose funding is being reviewed by the USAID, which was forwarded to them by US Ambassador Thomas Harry, Jr.: a 20 US million dollar gherkins production loan for one million hectares in 11 provinces in Mindanao that will benefit some 3 million farmers. This can also help government's balik probinsiya program for the informal settlers in Metro Manila.
