Business Night 2020 (Virtual)

Scene from Business Night 2019: Two students at lecturn addressing a nearly full ballroom

For nearly 60 years, Business Night has been an inspirational evening of mentorship for students and professionals.

This year, we moved the Business Night program online to do our part to safeguard our students and community during the COVID-19 health crisis. A very warm mahalo to title sponsor First Insurance Company of Hawaii, media sponsor Hawaii Business, keynote speaker Julie Arigo, and all of our award donors for their generous and steadfast support of our students.

Business Night Online features pre-recorded video speeches and a slideshow of student awards. We hope you join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our students and honor the impact our business professionals have on their lives.
