CEO Forum

Friday, September 20, 2019: 3:00 PM-5:30 PM
Meeting Room 501 (Metro Toronto Convention Centre)


This year’s CEO Forum will focus on public perceptions of science, technology, and research. As leaders of places where more than 110 million people around the world encounter and engage with science and technology each year, chief executives of science and technology centers and museums must keep a pulse on the public’s views on and experience of science. The forum will feature data from recent research and reports, including:

Following presentations from leaders involved with these studies and reports, the chief executives will discuss with each other the implications of these findings for their science-engagement work, and, in the context of ASTC’s new strategic direction, will provide feedback to ASTC for how ASTC can support its member museums in responding to these findings and setting course together for new frontiers and an equitable future.


  • Imran Khan, Head of Public Engagement, Wellcome Trust
  • Chris Volpe, Executive Director, ScienceCounts
  • Erica Kimmerling, Senior Advisor for Science-Engagement Policy and Partnerships, ASTC

Preregistration required. 

For CEOs of science museums and institutions.
