Notable Moments: Daring Generations award celebration was a special night honoring women in various stages of life and offering a chance to meet WFSA’s new CEO, Katia Jones. Designed to honor and amplify the voices of those dedicated to advancing gender equity in Arizona, Daring Generations brought together a diverse group of professionals, advocates and leaders. The evening flipped the script of the traditional fundraiser by devoting the majority of the night to the honorees — women doing amazing work in the community.
