The 2023 Hawaii Conference on Language Access


The Office of Language Access is pleased to present:

Language Access – Navigating Towards a New Normal,

an in-person one day conference to be held on:

When:           Tuesday, August 29, 2023

Time:             7:45 AM – 4:30 PM

Where:        The Ala Moana Hotel, Hibiscus Ballroom – 410 Atkinson Drive, Honolulu, HI  96814

Please join us as we, collectively, continue our journey to make timely and competent language assistance the norm for every person with          Limited English Proficiency (LEP) who seeks governmental services in the State of Hawaiʻi.

The conference will highlight “plain language” as a part of implementing language access today.  The objectives for this year’s conference are to:

• Emphasize the importance of plain language as the building block of effective communication.

• Facilitate the sharing of ideas, expertise, and experiences from local and national perspectives.

• Identify ways to increase organizational capacity to provide language assistance to persons with limited English proficiency.

You will have the opportunity to engage with subject matter experts from a variety of settings and jurisdictions; language service providers; community practitioners and others who are passionate about ensuring that those with Limited English Proficiency have meaningful access to benefits, programs, and activities.
