Keynote Presentation

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Sonia Winner, President & CEO, Cleveland Museum of Natural History

TOPIC: 100th Anniversary and Major Expansion Project


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Sonia Winner became the 10th director of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History in July 2018. In this role, she
partners with a 50-person Board of Directors and 120 staff members to advance the mission of the Museum—an
institution with $282 million in assets. For 100 years, the Museum has been inspiring a passion for science and nature in
its visitors. It ranks among the top 10 natural history museums in the United States in terms of endowment, size of collection,
and attendance.

Through the Museum’s Transformation Project and $150 million Transforming the World of Discovery campaign, Winner is spearheading a complete reimagining of the Museum’s complex in a way that highlights the interconnectedness of all life on Earth. The pioneering reinvention
will serve as a new model for natural history museums globally.

Prior to her appointment as CEO, Winner served as Acting Director of the Museum beginning in January 2018. She
returned to the Cleveland area in January 2017 to join the Museum team as Chief Development Officer.
