On Friday, July 13, Leadership Greater Washington had the pleasure of welcoming Lonnie G. Bunch III, Founding Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. Mr. Bunch is celebrated as one of the nation's leading figures in the historical and museum community and was recently featured on Politico's Annual 50 List. More than 100 LGW members, and regional leaders attended the inspiring conversation, moderated by Richard Bynum (‘13) of PNC. The discussion covered Lonnie’s insights on culture and leadership, including the importance of supporting growth in museums and the significance of cultural institutions and their role in helping business organizations and government transform communities.
