Donna Dertz
President, SHRM Hawaii Educational Foundation Kauai 

There are five very straightforward goals we have set out to achieve:

  1. Increase awareness of our organization and its contribution within the community.
  2. Promote educational activities in and for the profession.
  3. Support our School-to-Work and College Relations efforts and initiatives.
  4. Provide information access and resources - for issues, strategies, and best practices in the employment arena.
  5. Assist our members in their professional development.

Though simplified, these initiatives define the purpose of our organization and provide the incentives we need to expand our influence and strengthen our professional careers.

Our organizational activities include:

Educational Programs: The Kauai Educational Foundation has six educational programs throughout the year. All of the programs are related to educational development and enhancement of skills for the selected career field of Human Resources management. The programs consist of featured guest speakers on various human resources topics, including application and compliance of labor laws affecting the workforce.

School-to-Work/College Relations: The Kauai Educational Foundation provides the services of professionals in the field of human resources to become guest speakers at public and private high schools on the island of Kauai. The purpose of the School-to-Work/College Relations Program is to educate students and school counselors about the various career fields, advocate and coordinate programs that address workforce readiness initiatives, and promote HR as a profession to college students.
