Event Details

Hawaii Business Magazine presents six CHANGE Events covering Hawai‘i's most important issues:

Community & Economy, Health & Wellness, Arts & Culture, Natural Environment, Government & Civics, and Education.

Hawai‘i Community Foundation created the CHANGE Framework to identify gaps and opportunities for positive change and to mobilize people to work together toward shared goals.

At these events you will:

Hear from speakers about key developments in each area

Be inspired by how the Hawai‘i business community is taking action

Network with like-minded people at the after-panel pau hana*.

Improving Our Political Climate

Change will happen when more citizens are involved, including leaders and ordinary people from our neighborhood, businesses, nonprofits and governments.
