A Conversation With Harve Mogul

United Way’s Harve Mogul to present at this year’s Miami Leadership Dialogues

Nothing makes a difference in a community more than how individual citizens become engaged, bringing their values, knowledge, and skills to shape the future of their neighborhood, their city, their region.

Harve Mogul, President and CEO of the United Way of Miami-Dade and one of South Florida’s most respected leaders, will be this year’s featured speaker at The Miami Leadership Dialogues on April 12, 2016, at Florida International University (FIU). This annual event is presented by FIU’s Office of the President, External Relations, and Center for Leadership.

“Each year, our Miami Leadership Dialogues event lets attendees hear from a highly regarded leader on important issues facing Miami-Dade, from education to healthcare,” states Mayra Beers, Ph.D., Director of Operations for the Center and a Knight Research Fellow. “Few people besides Harve have their fingers on the pulse of our community and what will be meaningful to move us forward- we are delighted that he has agreed to lead our 2016 discussions.”

A lifetime of leadership and service to Miami-Dade
Mr. Mogul is the recipient of the 2015 Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Sand In My Shoes Award, the chamber’s highest honor, given to outstanding community leaders who have made significant contributions to the South Florida region.

Under Mr. Mogul’s leadership since 1991, United Way of Miami-Dade has earned national recognition as one of the leading United Ways and non-profits in the country, frequently cited for excellence in its major gift and fundraising programs, diversity efforts, emergency responsiveness, financial stewardship, and governance and community building initiatives. In 2007, United Way opened the Center for Excellence in Early Education, a national best practices teaching and training initiative dedicated to elevating the quality of early childhood education. In 2009, United Way opened the Center for Financial Stability, one of two such centers in the country, to address economic hardships facing individuals and families.

Mogul, a graduate of the University of Maryland, has been a United Way professional since 1973. In addition, he helped plan the national campaign to raise $100 million for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial and Museum in Washington D.C., served in the United States Peace Corps, taught fifth grade, and worked with community planning and advocacy organizations.

The Miami Leadership Dialogues were created to provide an opportunity for speakers to share their perspective on the current state and future opportunities for Miami. Speakers are recognized community leaders from business, government, and civic organizations who also use the opportunity to field questions from community members. The Miami Leadership Dialogues is a free event, open to the public, but advance registration is needed. The 2016 event will be held from 9:30-10:30am (doors open at 9am) on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 in the Graham Center Ballrooms on the Modesto Maidique Campus of FIU.
