CompuGirls Hawai'i Summer 2022
Learn, Lead, and Lunch: Visits to Cyber Hubs on Three Hawaiian Islands
CompuGirls Hawaiʻi offered localized experiences this summer for students interested in cybersecurity and computer science on three different islands. The Learn, Lead, and Lunch event invited students to visit cyber hubs on their own island to meet mana cyber wāhine (women cyber leaders) in computer science and information technology.
On Maui, students visited the Maui High Performance Computing Center and the Maui Economic Development Board led by Tiare Martin and Dr. Robyn Garner.
On Oʻahu, students visited the Information Technology Center and East-West Center (EWC) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and met with Jodi Ito (CISO of UHM), Suzy Vares-Lum (President of EWC), and Connie Lau (retired President of HEI).
On Hawaiʻi Island, students visited the ʻImiloa Astronomy Center, and meet with Kaʻiu Kimura, executive director.
A statewide CompuGirls Summit on July 8, 2022 brought together former and new CompuGirls from the various islands to engage in hands-on learning experiences with local young professionals from the cyber sector.
