Aloha from Honolulu and welcome to the 2019 Changing Faces Women’s Leadership Seminar! We are thrilled to have you on board for this exciting program and look forward to meeting you in May.
Changing Faces Women's Leadership Seminar
Theme: Women as Innovators and Entrepreneurs
Destination: Oahu and Maui
Dates: July 7 - 20, 2019
The 2019 Changing Faces Women’s Leadership Seminar will focus on the important role that innovation and entrepreneurship play in contributing to economic growth, job creation, and strengthening communities. During this 12-day professional training, dialogue and travel program, participants engage in a series of workshops focused on leadership and entrepreneurship that are facilitated by a noted women’s leadership trainer and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Participants also expand their knowledge of entrepreneurship, economic growth, leadership, and community building through carefully selected field visits and meetings with experts, practitioners, business owners, and policymakers in Hawaii. Participants are individually matched with local women leaders in a Host Mentor program and, in return, Changing Faces participants act as mentors for a select group of high school students in a Next Generation Service Project. The Changing Faces Seminar also provides training and consultative sessions to help participants develop and actualize a concrete Action Plan for the betterment of their business or their community. Finally Changing Faces women serve as panelists, moderators and attendees at the publically ticketed #galswithLEI, a purposeful, collaborative, and dynamic forum.
Date: July 17, 2019, 1:00 - 7:30pm
Location: East-West Center's IMIN Conference Center
The #galswithLEI Forum, scheduled to take place on July 17, 2019, celebrates the Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Inspiration of female business and social entrepreneurs in generating jobs and strengthening communities. #galswithLEI is not your typical event. Rather, information sharing is purposeful, collaborative, and dynamic. #galswithLEI offers six interactive workshops focused on Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Inspiration followed by an attendee driven open space and a networking reception, featuring local female chefs. Workshop panelists and special guests include local established women leaders, bold millennials, and the 2019 Changing Faces women.
