Terrie Rouse is back in Washington after successfully opening the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia and continuing her consulting practice to help cultural organizations through times of change. This week, Terrie and I will be talking about a variety of issues including museum accreditation, the importance of professional development, the feminization of the museum field and the museums issues that just keep coming around. Terrie has presided over the opening and operation of many of our most important cultural institutions. Among her many accomplishments, Terrie has served on the Board of the American Alliance of Museums and was appointed the United States Cultural Envoy to the U.S. Embassy in Columbia. Terrie’s perspectives and observations about our field are always razor sharp and filled with wit.
