Mindanao’s Judge Jerlie Requerme is wrapping up her training as the first Filipino in the Next Generation Leader (NGL) Program of the McCain Institute in the United States.
Judge Requerme ends her 9-month NGL stint this May 2020 after being chosen last September 2019 to be part of the leadership training to help her better the judicial system in the Philippines.
Hosted by the McCain Institute in the States, the NGL Program is a prestigious program whose participants are nominated to undergo training that betters their ethics, values, and leadership to develop a competent and continuous, world-changing network of leaders.
Judge Requerme is currently at the National Center for the State Courts (NCSC) – International Program Division in Virginia, for the intensive professional and personal training.
Tasked by her NGL Fellowship to have a plan to bring back to her home country, Judge Requerme is determined to digitize court records in the Philippines to better preserve the integrity of the records and the judicial system.
Presently, an estimated 15% of both unorganized and organized 2,718 trial courts are test runs of the electronic court system; and these are spread in 12 different areas nationwide.
In the midst of COVID-19, the Filipino judge finds herself isolated from her home of Mindanao and her family due to travel restrictions. Yet even when she questions herself, she still finds herself determined to bring about her plans to better her country and her world.
Another Filipina leader and gamechanger, Anjanette S. Tadena’s pitch to help Filipino farmers in the mushroom industry won in a YSEALI Agribusiness Incubator Workshop Pitch Competition.
Forbes Asia also honored three Filipino youth innovators in their Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia Class of 2020.
