The Chamber, in partnership with Dentons US LLP and Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, invite you to hear from industry-leading speakers on the housing crisis in Hawaii at the Health Summit webinar Creating a Healthy Workforce Through Housing on Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00 AM.

From not being able to retain workforce due to the high cost of housing, to not being able to recruit top talent due to the lack of housing options, to low workforce productivity and individual health concerns due to the stress of trying to afford to live in Hawaii, health and housing issues are inter-related.
Featured thought leaders will discuss reducing the housing instability and potential solutions:
