Join Neil Blumenthal, co-founder and co-CEO of pioneering eyewear industry brand, Warby Parker, for the sixth installment of the Museums Dreamers and Doers speaker series.
Neil’s work and Warby Parker’s mission perfectly represent the goals of this series -- an entrepreneurial story featuring a business model deeply intertwined with giving back; the “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program is a central part of the Warby Parker model, among other philanthropic and socially conscious efforts.
Additional details coming soon.
The Dreamers and Doers Speaker Series has been anonymously endowed by a friend of the Museum and admirer of all Dreamers and Doers.

Westheimer; legendary concert and tour promoter, and Tony Award-winning Broadway producer, Larry Magid; and dermatologist and co-founder of Proactiv® Solution and Rodan + Fields®* skincare brands, Dr. Kathy Fields.
