Hawai‘i’s sector partnerships are industry-led, community-supported partnerships that strengthen local economies and connect people to careers. They successfully provide:
Industry value: a venue to collaborate and strategize on shared opportunities to strengthen their sector; and a coordinated way to access education, workforce and economic development, government, and other key stakeholders all in one place.
Public sector value: opportunities for economic and workforce development, education, government, and other key stakeholders to leverage funds and efforts; collaborate and break down silos; and work with industry in a coordinated way.

IT Workforce Needs Analysis
The IT Workforce Needs Analysis aims to understand the current and future information technology (IT) workforce needs of Hawaii companies. It compares IT workforce supply and demand and looks at the fastest growing IT occupations, and skills and credentials that Hawai‘i employers seek. Using the insights of local employers and labor market data, the report also provides recommendations to ensure our state has a local, highly trained IT talent pipeline to support this growing sector.
