Supporting the Success of Women in STEM: Mentorship and Coaching Through Hula Perspective
This presentation focuses on three cohorts trained in mentorship and coaching under the ADVANCE Partnership Grant at the University of Hawaii Community Colleges, UH Hilo, and UH West Oahu. It outlines the structure of a hula halau and refers to moʻololelo, Native Hawaiian storytelling, that highlights and demonstrates a collective practice of mentorship and coaching. The presentation makes a case for place-based models for framing and instituting training programs. This is particularly relevant at UH Hawaii, which is formally an indigenous serving institution, to include practices that are informed by the context.
