I am the President and founder of isisHawaii, a non-profit organization that provides mentoring and other programs to connect industry to education to excite students about science, tech, engineering and mathematics (i.e., STEM). I am also the Oahu project manager for The Women in Technology Project - a demonstration project administered by The Maui Economic Development Board, Inc., as a statewide workforce development initiative to encourage women, girls and other under represented groups into science- and math-based fields.
Thanks for the op, Aaron. It's always great to hear how much people care about helping our students. Your single gesture will expose many more students to role models from industry and provide resources to help these kids work towards creating a successful future. Mahalo to YOU!
