The Hawai’i Island Women’s Leadership Forum (HIWLF) announces the 2nd annual Hawai’i Island Women’s Leadership Summit on Friday, August 26, 2016 will return to the Hilton Waikoloa Village.
“The Hilton was a great fit for our inaugural event last year, which was attended by nearly 300 individuals,” says Farrah-Marie Gomes, Chair of HIWLF. “We are excited to return for our 2nd annual Summit this summer.”
This year’s Summit theme is “Tools for Excellence – Self, Relationships, Career and Community.” Attendees will enjoy a keynote speaker, breakout presentations, lunch, vendor expo and a networking pau hana. Breakout topics will complement the theme and be presented by a wide array of Hawai’i Island entrepreneurs, professionals, leaders and rising stars.
One attendee to last year’s event shared, “The Summit fills a void where there has never been an opportunity for women to discuss issues, improve themselves and learn to network with other women across the island. These opportunities exist on O’ahu and perhaps other islands, but never on our island.”
