Maui Starwood Properties Host Career Mixer, Sept.10
By Wendy Osher
Maui’s first Nā Wahine Mixer, a career development and networking event takes place tonight at the Westin Kāʻanapali Ocean Resort Villas.
The event is open to the public and includes a talk story session with Westin KOR general manager Angela Nolan who will share her career journey and accomplishments. The discussion will be followed by group networking.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of lightly used professional attire as part of the company’s 2014 Fall Clothing Drive, benefiting Women Helping Women, a local non-profit offering shelter and services to victims of domestic violence.
Tonight’s career mixer runs from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at Pulehu, located at the Westin KOR.
The career development and networking event is hosted by three Starwood Hawaiʻi properties on Maui: the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, the Westin Maui Resort & Spa, and the Westin Kāʻanapali Ocean Resort Villas.
Event organizers say it is part of a series of community outreach initiatives planned by Nā Wahine Kuilima o ka Leo Kamaehu, a division of the company that supports the advancement of women.
The diversity initiative reportedly works to “increase the number of high-potential women for senior management and leadership positions through training and mentorship.”
