Executive Director Visits Kauai Committee on the Status of Women
The Kaua‘i Committee on the Status of Women (KCSW) last month met its new executive director, Khara Jabola-Carolus, from the Hawai‘i State Commission on the Status of Women.
Jabola-Carolus visited Kaua‘i on Aug. 15 to share her vision and ideas for the upcoming year and to personally meet each member of the KCSW, as well as some of the committee’s strong community partners.
“We do need to gather and meet face to face to effectively collaborate with our members, community partners and HSCSW,” stated KCSW Chair Patricia Wistinghausen. “This is just the start of an important conversation to advocate for women and girls. Meeting our executive director and aiming our goals together will only strengthen our voices.”
Jabola-Carolus has a juris doctorate from the University of Hawai‘i William S. Richardson School of Law and a bachelor’s degree from New York University.
The KCSW is part of the Hawai‘i State Commission on the Status of Women, which strives to advance the status of women and girls by acting as a catalyst for positive change through advocacy, education, collaboration and program development.
