Hawaii is making continually strides to diversify its economy in a variety of directions, including high tech. High tech jobs are considered to be high-quality and high-paying, unlike many jobs in the service and agricultural industries. Yet the challenges are daunting in developing the kind of workforce Hawaii's high tech businesses need to flourish and grow. Join host David Lassner with guests Alex McGehee of Enterprise Honolulu and Mike Rota of the University of Hawaii as they discuss the issues and solutions to matching supply and demand in Hawaii's high tech workforce.

It airs live on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the academic year from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. High Tech Hawai'i can be seen on PEG Access cable channel 55 throughout the state.
