Hawai‘i P-20 Pathways Summit 2020

September 10, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

2020 Pathways Summit: A Focus on Equity, Innovation and Partnerships

There are many examples of inspiring pathway work happening locally. Increased alignment, integration and consistent coordination will ensure a clear and coherent path for students to see and move towards their futures. Our hope is the sharing of best practices and dedicated time for collaboration with critical stakeholders at various levels and across grades 6-16, will help to amplify this great work and ensure all students have increased opportunities to thrive in college, career and within our state.

Keynote Address Description:

Beyond Alignment: The Equity, Innovation, and Partnership Imperatives in Building Stronger Pathways through College into Career

Presenter: Joel Vargas, Vice President, Jobs for the Future

Hawai‘i is making great strides toward its 55 by 25 goals, but like other states, progress must be accelerated. Strong strategies are already in play, but their full power can only be realized through efforts by secondary and postsecondary education, businesses, and communities to focus in a concerted way on equity, innovation, and partnerships.
