The Hauser Leaders are accomplished leaders from the public, nonprofit, and business sectors from all around the world. They will participate in events all year long to get to know and interact with Harvard students.

“At a time when many challenges stem from leadership shortcomings, these Hauser Leaders bring to campus living examples of principled and effective public leadership,” according to Deval Patrick, co-director of the Center for Public Leadership.

“A huge honor to be invited to Harvard Kennedy School's Center for Public Leadership, as one of its Hauser Leaders for the Fall 2022 semester. As Hauser Leaders, we will engage with students, faculty, alumni, and the wider Harvard community during our stint on campus. I'm both thrilled and humbled to be given this space to share my advocacies and experiences, alongside this roster of distinguished leaders from various fields and sectors. What a blessing it is to be returning to Cambridge for this opportunity,” Atty. Robredo said in a Facebook post.

Amid not holding a position in the government for this administration, her non-profit organization, Angat Buhay Foundation, is still on the run, aiming for what the organization title itself says, elevating the lives of people.
