THE JOY OF SAKE

The world's largest sake celebration outside Japan returns to Honolulu with an unparalleled selection of hundreds of premium sakes in peak condition. Sakes reflect every brewing region and style in Japan, with a rising number from U.S. brewers. About half are ultra-premium daiginjos, and more than half the sakes are unavailable in the U.S.

Rising to the occasion, 20 of Hawaii's top chefs and restaurants will present an eclectic lineup of sake-inspired pupus to nibble between sips.

What else? Izakaya Alley is back, bigger than ever, with upscale Japanese street food in a festive, lantern-lit outdoor setting. And limited Early Access tickets offer an exclusive one-hour headstart on the festivities.

EAST-WEST CENTER CHANGING FACES WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP SEMINAR

To address the challenges confronting working women entrepreneurs in the Asia Pacific, including poor access to leadership and entrepreneurial training; insufficient contacts and social capital necessary to access information and advice; a paucity of role models; and a “lack of positive attitudes about their own personal capacities” (Kelley et al., 2011, p. 8), the East-West Center established the Changing Faces Women’s Leadership Seminar in 2002. This 12-day immersive, leadership and professional development seminar is designed for innovative women entrepreneurs from Asia, the Pacific, and the United States to enhance their leadership skills and entrepreneurial capacity; experientially explore innovative entrepreneurship, leadership, and community examples; build a sense of self-efficacy; and expand national and regional networks.
