Elaine Antonio Bordeaux, a distinguished Filipina-American immigration lawyer and acclaimed sculptor, has been named one of the recipients of the 2024 Global Women Who Rule (GWWR) award.

This prestigious accolade, to be presented on May 25, 2024, celebrates women who have made significant contributions in their respective fields, showcasing leadership, innovation, and global impact.

Bordeaux has achieved notable success as an immigration lawyer, passionately advocating for immigrants’ rights and providing critical support to those navigating complex legal challenges. Her dedication to justice and equality has enabled numerous individuals and families to realize their dreams and secure better futures.

In addition to her legal career, Bordeaux is a talented sculptor. She recently collaborated with artist Fritz Silorio to create a 6-foot sculpture of Dr. Jose Rizal, which is scheduled for installation in Colorado Springs in June 2025. Her latest project, the “Courage” exhibit, will be displayed at the San Francisco Philippine Consulate from July 8 to July 12, 2024, with an opening night event on July 8 at 5 pm.

This exhibit features a series of works depicting historical icons such as Lapulapu, Dr. Jose Rizal, and Apo Whang Od, culminating in the unveiling of a relief sculpture honoring Filipina war hero Magdalena Leones, a Silver Star awardee. The “Courage” exhibit was previously showcased in Barcelona and Madrid last year.

“I am deeply honored to be recognized among such an incredible group of women,” said Bordeaux. “This award is not just a personal milestone but a testament to the collective effort and support of my team, family, and community. I am also thrilled to present the ‘Courage’ exhibit and pay tribute to the bravery and heroism of Magdalena Leones as a Filipina war hero during World War II.”

The Global Women Who Rule awards highlight women who are leaders in their industries and advocates for change and equality. Bordeaux’s dual impact in law and the arts exemplifies these values, making her a deserving recipient of this honor.

With nearly two decades of experience, Bordeaux has successfully managed numerous high-profile immigration cases. Her passion for art has led her to create powerful sculptures that embody themes of courage and resilience. Bordeaux’s multifaceted talents and dedication to societal impact are evident in her work.

Bordeaux is also the president and executive director of the Dr. Jose Rizal Legacy International Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization based in Colorado, USA, dedicated to promoting Philippine arts, culture, and history.
