If you've ever applied for any kind of job in your life, you've probably heard the phrase "workplace diversity" more than a few times. We live in a colorful world and just like most companies, the YMCA prides itself on celebrating the things that make us all different. But what does workplace diversity actually mean? How does it work and how might you feel it?
It's a big question and so we did what we always do when we have big questions... we asked our Executive Director, Tony Yee. Click "Read more" to here what he has to say, how he's felt his own uniqueness was appreciated, and what he really looks for in candidates.

We're always curious why people come to work and stay with the Kaimuki YMCA. Earlier in the year we asked a few of our current staff why they find themselves at our branch and we came up with this great compilation of words to inspire us: Why I work at the Kaimuki YMCA (Part 1).
This time, we got to speak to one of our Summer Day Camp Group Leaders, Kaluhi Kaapana and we asked her a different question - What is she learning so far?
Our Summer staff are sometimes with us just for the summer and in such a short time, what do they get out of it? Read more on what Kaluhi has to say.
If you'd like to join the Summer staff, you're still welcome! Visit our jobs page here.
