From Today to Tomorrow: A Talent Roadmap to Support Economic Recovery

The crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic recession demands a response from leaders from all sectors across the state of Hawai‘i. While the challenges being faced are significant, leaders across our islands are being presented with the opportunity to transform the lives of residents who are struggling to gain a foothold in our state’s economy while also creating a climate in which the economy can thrive and grow.

By working together – and measuring our progress – we can open the door to economic advancement for all of Hawai‘i’s residents, ensure a qualified applicant for every job opening, and build an economy that works for Hawai‘i.” Learn more and get involved.
