YWCA Oahu: A 2021 LeaderLuncheon Celebration premiers June 12 at 7 p.m. on KGMB

Sponsored by YWCA Oahu

For more than 40 years, YWCA Oahu has been recognizing extraordinary female leaders. Rachael Wong is one of four local women being honored for her leadership and community service at YWCA Oahu’s 2021 LeaderLuncheon.

Wong is the founder of One Shared Future (OSF), which imagines a positive future for Hawaii and brings people together to collectively create that future. OSF offers community-building professional development programs that strengthen the public, private, and non-profit sectors’ capacity to partner and innovate. She is also the co-founder of the Safe Spaces & Workplaces Initiative (SSWP), an OSF-Child & Family Service partnership to end workplace sexual harassment in Hawaii through collaboration.

Wong was born and raised in Hawaii and has dedicated her career to improving quality of life for others: as director of the State of Hawai’i Department of Human Services, where she led the creation of the state’s ʻOhana Nui multigenerational framework; in nonprofit leadership roles at the Healthcare Association of Hawaii, Kōkua Mau, and the Hawaii Consortium for Integrative Care; and now through OSF and SSWP.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in East Asian studies and certificate in women’s studies from Princeton University, a master’s degree in public health from UH Mānoa, and a Doctorate in Public Health from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
