OWL Spring Mixer

Thursday, April 18, 2019

The ladies of OWL and their guests had a great time at the OWL Spring Mixer. This year, the Spring Mixer was held at Nico’s Upstairs - a wonderful venue on Pier 38 offering the ladies a chance to network in an informal atmosphere while appreciating the beauty of our island home.

This year, Unyong Nakata from the University of Hawaii Shidler College of Business kicked off our Spring Mixer with an informal presentation entitled “She did it HER way: unapologetically leading with grace and humor.” Leading an interactive discussion of workplace leadership and management, the ladies of OWL engaged in a thought-provoking discussion of the issues.

The ladies of OWL also stepped it up this year with 12 door prize give aways - many left the evening not only after a great time with our OWL Ohana, but also with fabulous prizes!

OWL would like to thank Kaiser Permanente for sponsoring our OWL Spring Mixer!

Women's Legislative Caucus Breakfast


Wednesday, January 23, 2019

OWL again supported the YWCA's annual Women’s Legislative Caucus Breakfast on Wednesday, January 23rd at the YWCA’s Fuller Hall.  The 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.


This year's sold-out breakfast was organized to provide supporters with a preview of bills that will be proposed in the upcoming session. These bills cover a broad spectrum of issues of concern to women of all ages and economic background. 

Thank you to OWL members Renee Green, Cheryl Cross, Ann Nagel and Pam Harms for their assistance at the registration table during the Women's Legislative Caucus Breakfast!

The 11th annual Hawaii Business Wahine Forum was held on October 25th.  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 “We Are Wahine."  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 13 sessions that focused on leadership, negotiating, building confidence and, especially, effective collaborations.

OWL Pau Hana 2018 Outrigger Canoe Club

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 October 3, 2018.

Our annual OWL Fall Pau Hana was a great time for our OWL members and guests to catch up and network.  OWL member Pene Paik (pictured below, top left) provided us with great public speaking tips - it is always nice to get a refresher in this area, as well as learn something new.  Thanks Pene! 

Another highlight of our evening was our annual door prize give-aways -- thank you to all who donated to make this a success!
The Pau Hana is a great way for OWL members and guests to get to know each other.  Offering an informal evening on the shores of Waikiki, the Outrigger Canoe Club is a special place to gather.  If you couldn't make it to this event, look for information on our OWL Spring Mixer!

A BIG thank you to our Pau Hana sponsor, Kaiser Permanente, for helping us enjoy our annual OWL Pau Hana and for their support for our organization.  Pictured below, top right, is Linda Puu, RN, Vice President of Quality, Safety, and Patient Experience, representing Kaiser Permanente at our Pau Hana.
