Hawaii Business Magazine Publisher Cheryl Oncea says the Leadership Conference aims to “inspire attendees to lift their eyes from the depths of COVID and quarantines to think and learn about themselves and our community.” She says the 15 sessions will be educational and inspirational while remaining relevant and timely.
The opening general session, “Leadership Skills for Today and Tomorrow,” focuses on the skills we all need in today’s changing world. The panelists are Harrison, Kishimoto, Fukunaga, Micah Kāne of the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation, Noriko Namiki of the YWCA O‘ahu and Duane Kurisu of aio.
The conference will connect people and ideas during this time of isolation – recognizing that connections can create collaborations and positive changes in Hawai‘i and worldwide.
“What we do locally can have a global effect,” says Oncea. “Great ideas and inspiring sessions create ripples that reach across our beautiful island community and beyond.”
