WOEDA is a dynamic group of business, community and government leaders dedicated to supporting the economic growth of West Oahu. Together we strive to be a voice for job creation in West Oahu. We engage in advocacy, education and promotion, to ensure that West Oahu is a great place to live, work and play.
WOEDA's current efforts are aimed at increasing the number of jobs in West Oahu. This calls for:
Advocacy - Developing legislative and public awareness to support job development in West Oahu. An example is WOEDA's support for the development of a mass transit alternative.
Program Development – Activities that further the goal of job development in West Oahu. An example is WOEDA's annual West Oahu Conference.
Partnerships - Partnering with others who share our mission. An example is WOEDA's partnership and shared focus with Mayor Mufi Hannemann and Enterprise Honolulu to bring jobs to West Oahu.
WOEDA was created in 2001 to meet the needs of Hawaii's fastest growing area. The number of businesses in the area has doubled over the last decade as more businesses recognize the value of being where the growth will occur.
