This brief presents a third party, external perspective on the Akamai Workforce Initiative (AWI), highlighting some of the contributions of the initiative over the last ten years. AWI is a program that seeks to develop a skilled local STEM workforce to meet the needs of Hawai'i's growing high-tech industry. It began as an internship program launched in 2002 and is now the result of a long-term collaboration between the University of California Santa Cruz's Institute for Scientist & Engineer Educators (ISEE), the University of Hawai'i, and local Hawaiian high-tech businesses, observatories, Air Force facilities, and higher education partners. [This brief complements two related briefs: (1) "The UCSC Institute for Scientist & Engineer Educators: Supporting Multi-Level Stem Workforce Development" (ED558170); and (2) "The Design and Evolution of the Akamai Workforce Initiative: An External Review" (ED558167).]
