Through local and global speakers, candid panel discussions and break-out sessions, entertainment, and activities, the Conference aims to inspire innovation, identify opportunities for collaboration, and align efforts to create prosperous island communities that are rooted in Hawai‘i’s Soul.

Following the 2018 Conference, attendees committed to the Hawaii Community Foundation’s CHANGE framework as a way to establish shared goals and drive collective action. With the momentum built after the 2019 Conference, the Hawai’i Executive Collaborative, a nonprofit organization, was born. The Collaborative provides backbone support, energy and resources to help leaders form cross-sector partnerships to drive strategic changes for Hawai’i.  The Conference is an annual program of the Collaborative and continues to drive this spirit of commitment and collaboration.
