Member Opportunities

#galswithLEI Promotion Opportunity for Social Wahines!

Social Wahine is proud to announce that we will again be partnering with the East-West Center for the 3rd Annual #galswithLEI Forum on Thursday, June 29th, 2017.

As a SW member we have a special opportunity for you to reach over 10k business minded folks while supporting a great event. Pacific Business News has also come on board as a partner this year and in honor of this collaborative forum, Pacific Business News will publish a special #galswithLEI section celebrating the Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Inspiration of female business and social entrepreneurs in Hawai’i and the Asia Pacific region.

The section will be distributed at the #galswithLEI Forum as well as more widely within Pacific Business News’ June 9th publication with a circulation of over 10K+ copies.

We are extending a special opportunity to the Social Wahine network as you are exactly the kinds of partners this event is looking for.

An amazingly discounted rate for sponsorship and ad space in the section is available for women innovators and entrepreneurs in our community. This is your chance to be in PBN and align yourself and your business with Hawaii’s top leaders and international women. Bonus: PBN has also agreed to provide complimentary design services for all advertising messages. See here for full sponsor benefits and pricing 

If you are interested in becoming an advertising sponsor, please contact Christine Diaz, PBN Account Executive at or Amanda Noguchi

The May 12th deadline to secure ad space is fast approaching, so act quick and then make sure to save June 29th on your calendar for the forum. Social Wahine will also be offering a special rate to attend the forum and we will have our own space to meet before the forum begins so stay tuned for more details on this.
