Na wahine mixer open to public

Maui’s first Na Wahine Kuilima Mixer, a career development and networking event, will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Sept. 10 at Pulehu restaurant in the Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas.

The mixer will begin with a talk-story session led by Angela Nolan, general manager of Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas and advisory board member of Starwood Hawaii’s Na Wahine Kuilima o ka Leo Kamaehu. Nolan will share the story of her career journey and accomplishments.

The talk-story session will be followed by group networking. Light refreshments will be served.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of lightly used professional attire for the 2014 fall clothing drive benefiting Women Helping Women, a Maui nonprofit organization offering shelter and services to victims of domestic violence.

Donated clothing for men, women and children will be delivered to Women Helping Women following the Sept. 8-22 drive.

The mixer is hosted by the three Starwood Hawaii properties on Maui: Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, Westin Maui Resort & Spa, and Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas. It is part of a series of community outreach initiatives planned by Na Wahine Kuilima statewide to empower women.
