The Pacific Islands Society is the oldest regional society at the Islands Society. Its primary mission is to develop and implement programs that enable individuals and sub-national organizations from Pacific Island countries, states, and territories to more fully participate in international affairs. Specifically, the society develops and implements programs that provide women, ethnic minorities, and the next generation of leaders from these island communities with the knowledge, networks, platforms, and exposure required to realize their full potential as artists, athletes, chefs, designers, educators, musicians, nurses, scholars, policymakers, scientists, and technologists on the world stage.
