On August 17, MCBL hosted its third Wahine Forum Network of the year featuring Catherine Ngo, President and CEO of Central Pacific Financial Corp., and Keala Peters, Director of Strategic Marketing at The Queen’s Health Systems. The two women discussed and shared their experiences and perspectives as both mentees and mentors.

Over 60 attendees enjoyed the informative and inspiring poolside chat. Some key takeaways included:

  • Mentors can assist with career planning/goals, building skills, problem-solving and networking
  • A mentoring relationship may be short- or long-term
  • There’s always advice and a perspective that can be helpful
  • High-performing individuals with mentors are promoted more frequently

Our next WFN will be held on Thursday, December 7 featuring Michele “Bud” Nagamine, Head Coach Women’s Soccer, University of Hawaii at Manoa. Please check our upcoming events page and e-newsletter for updates.
