Accelerate Business Processes with Docusign

Join us to learn how streamlining complex document-based workflows with DocuSign can help Hawaii government agencies automate and track documents in a secure, centralized repository.
Every business process starts with a form, application, or document — of which many important historical records are stored on paper in filing cabinets, making it difficult to reference. This is the challenge the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) was facing, when they implemented DocuSign eSignature and Contract Lifecycle Management solutions to digitize document workflows.

Featured Speakers:

Deena Tearney, CEO, Pacific Point

Dean Hazama, Former DCCA Business Officer

Mary Moss, Account Executive,DocuSign

Smart technology solutions and how they can simplify & speed up business processes
How to leverage DocuSign solutions to build a flexible & scalable document management system that automates and tracks the document-based workflows within ARO/DIROFF
How HART will plan to leverage these solutions to streamline complex workflows

We hope this use case will help other organizations adopt technologies and innovation to improve productivity and efficiencies to tech-enable our community.

Laulima STEM Symposium

The annual Laulima Symposium allows all local scientists, engineers, teachers, and researchers to network and learn about Hawaii’s cool work in STEM! We invite all people in Hawaii or with a connection to Hawaii to attend! We also invite select students, teachers, professors, researchers, doctors, etc. to present at our annual symposium – a class project, a cool research topic, your research project, or a STEM-related cultural project! Embedded in the name, Laulima, is the idea that our scientific community requires collaboration not only between scientists but also with the greater community; the events in the symposium are approachable to those from non-scientific backgrounds who are interested in learning about Hawaii’s STEM ecosystem.
The Laulima Symposium serves as a setting in which students can discuss contemporary science and engineering issues that impact indigenous communities while also sharing their work in science and engineering to inspire others and to open themselves up to new opportunities in STEM. The symposium consists of short research talks and discussions with esteemed scholars, politicians, and community organizers to help solidify the role of an indigenous student in our constantly shifting world. Unlike most conferences, the Laulima Symposium targets broad participation from the community, which helps to create a collaborative and lively environment. As we encounter an increasing number of contemporary science and engineering-related indigenous issues ranging from topics surrounding land use, sovereignty, and education, we hope to create an inclusive environment in which all citizens of Hawaii can become informed and lead new movements.
Please join us on August 20 at 4:30 PM at the KROC center in Kapolei for our first-ever in-person event! At this event, we will have a few guest speakers and activities to get you engaged with STEM around Hawaii. We will also be providing a FREE buffet dinner to attendees. Note that registrations will close when we meet our registration cap. Please sign up to attend virtually (and indicate interest on the form to be on our waitlist) if our slots fill up! Please email honuascholars@gmail.com for any questions or concerns!

Hawaii Women in Tech: Happy Hour

If you were to combine networking, speed dating, and Esther Perel, this is what you’d end up with!Since this format worked well last time, we’re going to do another round. Five minutes to discuss each question with a partner and share career stories, dos/don’ts, and advice, then we swap partners (until you’ve had a chance to talk with everyone). Minimal awkward small chat, maximum in-depth career convos. It’s a great way to meet the other women in the group and get the inspiration/guidance/venting that you need.
Please note that this event is restricted to 14 people, so if you are unable to attend, please vacate your spot so someone else can join!
