Liliʻuokalani Trust presented Hawaii's first ever Innovation Huddle (iHuddle) on August 31 & September 1, 2017.
Over 300 people -- social innovators, visionary leaders, and impact makers -- gathered for a two-day conference to ignite the movement towards breaking the cycle of poverty for Hawaiian children.
The purpose of the iHuddle was to inspire and engage individuals as a community united, to build the collective capacity to advance LT's vision of nā kamalei lupalupa, thriving Hawaiian children. Speakers, special guests, and LT teammates were moved and perspectives transformed as participants took an in-depth look at issues facing our kamaliʻi, shed light on diverse viewpoints, and discovered promising pathways towards innovative solutions.
Over the past two years, LT has connected with numerous organizations and individuals doing innovative work locally and nationally. At the iHuddle, thought leaders discussed motivation, effective interventions, and measurable outcomes that have led them to achieve deep impact in their respective fields. Participants also had the opportunity to network and develop "unreasonable" partnerships -- connections that cut across disciplines for the common goal of social good. This conference implored us to cultivate a culture of learning, innovation, and excellence -- values embodied and shared by our founder, Queen Liliʻuokalani.
