Cleveland 20th Anniversary Benefit Breakfast

Thursday, March 7, 2019

You are warmly invited to join us at the Facing History and Ourselves Cleveland 20th Anniversary Benefit Breakfast.

For 20 years, we’ve worked to cultivate generations of critical thinkers and ethical leaders who will bring respect, civil discourse, and the value of inclusivity to their workplaces and communities in Northeast Ohio and beyond. Don't miss this special opportunity to meet, connect with and learn alongside 200 fellow business and civic leaders from the greater Cleveland area as we explore where we’ve been and how, with your support, we can help the next generation face history NOW.

Keynote speaker Beth Mooney, President and CEO of Keybank, will share how these ideals have helped shape Keybank’s culture and propelled the company to success, while making her one of the most respected corporate leaders in America today.
