|The CompuGirls Hawaiʻi 6-8 Program recently completed its Spring cohort. For their final project, they were tasked with presenting a profile of three mana wahine:
- Jodi Ito, chair of CyberHawaii and chief information security officer for the University of Hawaiʻi;
- Tiare Martin, executive director of Maui High Performance Computing; and
- Connie Lau, retired president and CEO of Hawaiian Electric Industries.
Students shared their journey of how they got to where they are, experiences in cybersecurity, and other fun facts. Afterward, the girls shared that the conversations with these mana wahine were the best part of the whole experience and being able see and speak to role models in cybersecurity was extremely meaningful to them.
