Abogado Lesley Cordero one of TOYM 2020 awardees

Lawyer Lesley Jeanne Cordero is one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Philippines in 2020.

The abogado, who specializes in disaster risk response, was selected by civic group JCI for her invaluable contributions to the Philippines.

Cordero once worked in the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery and is now a Senior Disaster Risk Management Specialist at the World Bank. Her latest landmark work is on the Marawi Rehabilitation and Recovery, which the global lender helped fund.

Even her ex-boss, Senator Ping Lacson, bled with pride.

“My former Undersecretary in the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery, Ms Lesley Cordero is one of the TOYM awardees for 2020. As far as I am concerned, she is more than deserving of the award knowing her selfless dedication to her work,” he said, heralding Cordero for her work on nation-building.

Congratulations!
