Shared Voices season 3
The RISD Presidential Speaker Series
7:30PM @ RISD Auditorium
About the series:
The RISD Presidential Speaker Series offers a forum for welcoming some of the most expansive thinkers of our times to campus. Each is a master of his or her domain but is also ready to transcend it, sharing the RISD community’s own belief in the fruitful exchange of ideas that happens when artists, designers, activists, scientists and other scholars really talk and listen to each other. Invited by the president with input from the faculty, each speaker in the series will engage with students and share perspectives with the entire community through a lively conversation in the RISD Auditorium.
April 22: Robin Chase , a founder and former CEO of Zipcar, the largest carsharing company in the world; Buzzcar, a service that brings together car owners and drivers in a carsharing marketplace in France; and GoLoco, an online ridesharing community. She is also Executive Chairman of Veniam ‘Works, a vehicle mesh communications company based in Portugal.
