Equity Program

To promote equity in business, we are proud to highlight diverse ownership.

There is strength in our diversity.

We believe in the power of our community to create an inclusive, welcoming environment where all Hawaiʻi Island business owners feel valued and supported. That’s why, to help build a culture of belonging and to promote equity in business, Big Island Made is proud to join forces with our Equity Partners to highlight diverse ownership on their behalf. We will be adding new categories as we partner with additional organizations!

LGBTQ-Māhū
