From our start 50 years ago DRC has built our success through talent educated and trained right here in Hawaii. Over 70% of DRC’s employees in Hawaii graduated from a Hawaiian university, and over 50% were born and raised here. DRC has long supported local research and education, and we’re pleased to announce our sponsorship of two important initiatives:

First, University of Hawaii Professor Bjorn Kjos-Hanssen won a grant from DRC that will further support undergraduate and graduate students working on research and coding in the Go programming language.

DRC is also proud to sponsor the “Outstanding Senior in MIS” award at the Business Night 2021 event from the Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawaii. The night brings together students and local business professionals for an evening of mentoring, networking and scholarly recognition. This year’s award has been presented to student Kelsey Ann Kimura this past Thursday, May 6th.

DRC is pleased to be able to support Ms. Kimura and looks forward to continuing to offer her mentoring and career advice as part of our broader recognition of the importance of research, education and networking in the local tech talent ecosystem, with the aim of developing STEM excellence.

DRC recognizes the importance of developing research, education and networking between students and business professionals in our local community. We look forward to continuing our involvement and financial support to advance the tech talent ecosystem and STEM excellence in Hawaii!
