Please join us on April 21 to hear a fun and dynamic speaker who will share invaluable tips on organizational leadership, re-inventing your career and successful multi-tasking!


How do you turn a law career into non-profit leadership?  Coralie Matayoshi went from practicing law to leading the HSBA and American Red Cross.  What does it take to run a successful non-profit organization and how can legal and other skills translate into the non-profit world?  How can non-profit work enhance your life and career?  Coralie will share lessons she learned along the way, including work, life, and balance.


Coralie Matayoshi is the Regional CEO of the American Red Cross Hawaii & Pacific Islands, overseeing a budget of $5.7 million and 4,000 volunteers.  She previously served as Executive Director of the Hawaii State Bar Association and Trial Attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division in Washington D.C.  A mother of three, Coralie was named by Pacific Business News as 2010 Businesswoman of the Year for nonprofits, and currently serves on the University of Hawaii Board of Regents.
