Featured MuseumExpert Members

  • Joel Bonasera

    Years in the field:


    "I can't help but wonder what museum outreach might look like in a world where remote engagement has become normalized. We need to find ways to engage in that context that aren't just shoehorning old programs into new technologies."

  • Charles Gibson

    Years in the field:


    “I believe there are individuals out there who are destined to make significant contributions, we just need to create the space for them to succeed! The tech divide is something that can’t be tackled alone.”

  • Christian Greer

    President and CEO, Michigan Science Center

    Years in the field:


    "There is still a ton of work to do to keep our missions alive as we continue to engage our audiences and communities.”

  • Hillary Hanel Rose

    Years in the field:


    “To set yourself up for career success during this changing time, I recommend being flexible and diversifying your skills as much as possible!”

  • Melissa Raynoha

    Years in the field:


    I would encourage my peers not to underestimate their abilities or qualifications. I think especially while job searching during this period of fewer opportunities and higher competition, it's unproductive to worry whether or not our skills match a position absolutely perfectly and then restrict ourselves because of that...If we see a position that we want, we should be confident and go for it!

  • Emily Rebmann

    Years in the field:


    “This is a good time to do research and to collaborate. Remember you are not alone.”
