Senior Vice President and General Counsel Jan Boivin is among the distinguished businesswomen named a 2019 “Women Who Mean Business” awardee. Pacific Business News is holding a celebration event on Thursday, March 14, at The Royal Hawaiian to recognize the contributions of these individuals, who are making a difference in our community.   

Boivin, who has worked with HPU since 2009, is credited with the development of programs throughout our organization that yielded a double-digit increase in employee engagement and awareness of the University’s mission, vision and values. Under her leadership, the University’s first wellness program was established in 2017.

In 2012, Boivin co-founded the “We Care” Safety Program that initiated an annual campus safety awareness campaign. The program aims to educate incoming freshmen and their parents on the correlation between alcohol and sex assault by urging parents and students to start their own conversation on the topic before students start classes.  

With a deep desire to help position Hawai‘i as a leader in innovation, education, sustainability and more, Boivin has a special interest in our education system and workforce and is committed to improving both statewide. Working with ES&A Law, she is entering her final year of a three-year technology conference.

Establishing relationships through the values of aloha, pono and kuleana, Boivin understands that as a community we are jointly responsible for identifying and implementing thoughtful, innovative solutions to ultimately lead change in Hawai‘i.
