Special Edition of Akaku Show â€œCrossroadsâ€ June 30 6 PM
This is not a KCA event, but we post it as a public service due to the community value the program offers at this onerous time.
The bimonthly show â€œCrossroadsâ€ is hosted by Huelo community activist, respected policy analyst and co-author of highly-regarded, published research on Mauiâ€™s water, Lucienne DeNaie.
The show focuses on issues which impact nonprofits and events across a political spectrum. It airs every other Tuesday, and a special edition of the show will be broadcast on June 30th at 6 PM.
Reportedly, several guest panelists will appear on the show June 30th to discuss the choices Maui faces in potentially diversifying Mauiâ€™s economy away from a large dependency on tourism and tourism-related businesses.
The panelists include:
- Linda Puppolo, with a long history of leadership with Maui small businesses and nonprofits, and who currently serves as Executive Director for the Maui County Workforce Development Board
- Jeanne Skog, who has served 21 years as President & CEO of the Maui Economic Development Board, and who currently serves on the advisory board of the Hawaiâ€˜i Budget and Policy Center and chairs the Economic Development Alliance of Hawaii
- Shay Chan-Hodges, the author of “Lean on and Lead: Mothering and Work in the 21st Centuryâ€, currently Co-organizer, Maui ESG Project and Ahupua`a Investment Summit
- Leslie Wilkins, longtime leader in business and professional womenâ€™s organizations and MEDB Women in Technology Project, currently President & CEO of MEDB and chair of County Workforce development board.
The show will be recorded live on Zoom, simulcast on Akakuâ€™s Facebook page and AKAKU Channel 54. Questions from viewers are welcomed and may be posted in the comments section during the livestream on Facebook.
