Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center will present a free talk by Janice Ikeda, “Recognizing and Removing Barriers to Organizational Communication,” on Feb. 15, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney located at 655 Kilauea Avenue in Hilo.

The talk will be an interactive session engaging participants to develop awareness of organizational structures and roles played in communication. Participants will learn strategies for effectively communicating within an organizational setting.

“My mission is to raise the capacity of emerging, innovative, and inclusive leaders who are committed to local-style community growth,” said Ikeda.

Ikeda has a M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University and a B.A. in Communication from University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. She has over 10 years of experience in nonprofit management and has been mentored by local, national and international leaders. Ikeda currently serves as Director of Operations at HOPE Services Hawai‘i, Inc.

The talk is part of Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center’s ongoing Brown Bag Lunch Series themed around “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace.” The free public talks are held on the third Thursday of each month. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch and enjoy an informal, educational talk-story session.
