Louisiana Children's Museum: CEO

August 23, 2022 11:36 AM | Anonymous

For more than 35 years, the Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM) has engaged children in intentional, immersive experiences and interactive play to support optimal social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth. Far more than a destination for entertainment, the Museum is a powerful hub for discovery, connecting and hands-on learning that is committed to strengthening communities one child and one experience at a time.

The organization is at an important nexus of opportunity and change. LCM is navigating the recent  transition of a long-serving CEO and the continuation of successful efforts to manage revenue and programs in response to the pandemic and Hurricane Ida. In addition to managing through these events, the Museum is learning how to optimize and shape the activities of a new, world-class facility and fully realize its potential. To lead these efforts, the Museum seeks a bold, innovative and collaborative individual who will lead the organization with an unwavering commitment to providing optimal opportunities for young children to learn and develop, to broadening accessibility and to ensuring that the Museum is fully engaged in its community. To support these aspirations, the new CEO will work with a talented staff and committed board to make certain that the Museum remains financially secure such that current and future generations can experience its magic.

Several important themes help define LCM. These include a commitment to sustainability; stewardship of the Louisiana environment, ecosystems and unique relationship with water; passionately serving all Louisianans; and supporting early healthy childhood development.

Very much emblematic of New Orleans, the Museum is a special place, led and supported by special people. LCM’s next leader will inherit a stable and aspirational organization and will be charged with successfully leading the Museum through its next phase of growth and development, achieving measurable outcomes in educational and experiential impact, and increasing levels of connection and consistent positive engagement with diverse communities throughout the Greater New Orleans area and Louisiana.

Key priorities for the new CEO include:

  • Ensuring that the Museum builds on its current momentum and implements the systems necessary to deliver program, operational and financial success.
  • Establishing themselves as an engaged, committed and credible partner in the Greater New Orleans area and Louisiana communities.
  • Leading and advancing healthy, transparent and collaborative relationships with the board, staff, community leaders and the many individuals and entities that support the Museum.
  • Being an inspired leader who will engage broad support for the Museum and work to attract, retain and develop committed and talented staff.
