WORK TOGETHER. RISE TOGETHER
October 26, 2017
Hilton Hawaiian Village
The 10th annual Hawaii Business Wahine Forum was held on October 26th. OWL once again supported this important event for women in Hawaii. Thank you to all the OWL ladies who helped man our booth and promote our great organization!
This year's forum centered on the theme “Work Together, Rise Together." Build your Life, Shape our World”. The theme was meant to encourage today’s women leaders to become mentors and sponsors for the next generation. The conference featured about 35 local and national speakers in 10 sessions that focused on leadership, negotiating, building confidence and, especially, effective collaborations.
It's time for our annual get together. Members and guests are welcome to come and enjoy an evening with your OWL sisters, meet new friends, and a chance to win fabulous door prizes!

OWL again supported the YWCA's annual Women’s Legislative Caucus Breakfast on Thursday, January 26th at the YWCA’s Fuller Hall. The Hawaii Women's Legislative Caucus is a formal, bipartisan, and bicameral caucus that each year introduces an official package of bills and resolutions in both the Senate and House of Representatives. The Caucus' legislative agenda focuses on women, children and families. All women legislators are members. This year's caucus package is dedicated to the Women's March on Washington.
This well-attended breakfast event was organized to provide supporters with a preview of the bills that will be proposed in the upcoming session. These bills include access to quality healthcare, reducing violence against women, economic opportunities for women, and children's health and safety.
This event offers a unique opportunity to hear from our women legislators and all those in attendance were inspired by their dedication to Hawaii's women, children and families.
The OWL Board of Directors would like to thank all of those who attended the OWL annual Pau Hana event at the Outrigger Canoe Club on September 28, 2016 from 5:30-7:30pm.
It is always so great to see our OWL sisters and guests having a fantastic time catching up and networking. A highlight of the evening again this year was the prize give-aways -- thank you to all who donated items for this wonderful event.
The Pau Hana is a great way for OWL members and guests to get to know each other, offering an informal evening at a truly beautiful venue on the shores of Waikiki. The OWL ladies were very excited about our last meeting of the year - if you have not done so yet, invite some friends in the community who would appreciate coming to our luncheon. Hope to see you next year at our annual Pau Hana!
