As Hawai’i moves forward in 2023 as an Employment First State, we seek the guidance, information, and processes from experts in the Pacific Rim about how to move forward with the State of Hawai’i’s Employment First efforts.

We invite National APSE members to share their stories and processes for leading Employment First in their states.

We will also discuss the mechanisms in place to help us work together to support competitive, integrated employment.
