Leadership: Victoria Rogers
We’ve got some incredibly smart, talented and genuine leaders in Miami.
A lot of our leaders get asked to speak on panels and get asked the same old questions about their work. We think it would be more fun to learn about the person behind the work. What was the journey like to their current position? What have they learned along the way? Join us for a relaxed and accessible evening with VP of Arts at The Knight Foundation, Victoria Rogers.
We’ll moderate a brief discussion with her on leadership, her journey, and some other random fun questions. Then we’ll keep things open for conversation and your questions.
The event is free to attend and food & drink will be available for purchase at The Wynwood Yard. RSVP REQUIRED
