Jason Brown currently serves as the Interim Director for the Carnegie Science Center, an iconic science and education destination in Pittsburgh. Prior to managing this sprawling organization and its ever-changing programs, exhibits, and initiatives, Jason was an educator and a business owner, and he draws upon those experiences each day to move the organization forward. In this podcast, Jason and I talk about: -The challenges of managing a large organization with multiple teams and departments -How the Carnegie Science Center mixes their brick & mortar programs with broader outreach to serve stakeholder inside and outside of the center itself -How teaching on an Indian reservation changed his perspective on education forever -What he has learned about the nonprofit space and how he grapples with everything from funding to measuring the impact of a program Jason is quite the storyteller and his perspective will be insightful for business owners and nonprofit leaders alike. Note: During the show, we spend a few minutes talking about Jason’s RocketBook, his physical-to-digital journal that he uses to keep himself and his teams on the same page.
