March 4, 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Zoom Add to Calendar

As educators, women have played a leading role in shaping the minds of the youth of our nation. For some, teaching has led to even larger leadership roles in government, including elected office. In honor of Women’s History Month, join us in conversation with teacher and Hawai'i’s First Lady, Dawn Ige, and retired schoolteacher and Employee Retirement System board member, Pilialoha Lee Loy, to reflect on the impact of some of the earliest elected and influential women in the State’s political and educational arenas. Featuring oral histories from Congresswoman Patricia Saiki, county and state lawmaker Helene Hale, and educator Marion Lee Loy, this program will explore what inspired these women to emerge as community leaders in pursuit of their policy goals and how education served as a tool for women to empower and engage our communities.
