Progress To Date
Invest in the professional development of public sector professionals who are working to make a positive impact on Hawaii’s communities.
Transform Hawaii Government was proud to support a bright spot in the endeavor of IT workforce development called One Shared Future, which envisions a community where all children, families, and individuals are supported to reach their fullest potential, so that we all may thrive. The program invests directly in the professional development of public-sector professionals who are working to make a positive impact on Hawaii’s communities.
Expanding professional development opportunities for public sector professionals is key to positive transformations. THG supported two spring cohorts beginning in March 2018. One cohort was comprised of professionals and human resources officers from five departments: the Department of Agriculture; Department of the Attorney General; Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism; Department of Budget and Finance; and Department of Human Services. The second cohort included the Department of Human Services again as well as the Department of Health.
Both cohorts culminated the Appreciating Change experience with “Springboard to Action” presentations in which participants shared the projects they developed though the series and that often address “seemingly intractable” issues in real time. Two Springboard projects were implemented before their commencement while others continue to develop through cross-agency collaborations.
