Public Conversations Project Has a New Executive Director

The Public Conversations Project (www.publicconversations.org) has hired Cherry Muse as its new executive director. Cherry brings impressive experience in all aspects of non-profit leadership as well as understanding of and commitment to PCP’s mission. Laura Chasin, PCP’s co-founder and executive director of 17 years, is shifting into the role of chair of PCP¹s board of directors. To read more about this transition, click on the link below.

Cherry began her professional life as a lawyer specializing in non-adversarial divorce, then embarked on a career in non-profit management working with Lenny Zakim at the Anti-Defamation League. Most recently, Cherry was recruited to lead The Wellness Community-Greater Boston, which provides a range of resources for people who are living with cancer and their loved ones. Her extensive non-profit experience will give PCP the seasoned leadership it will need to make its next chapter a productive, pioneering, and distinctive one.

These changes come at a time when PCP¹s organizational momentum is in full
swing. It is busy developing several new dialogue projects, its training program is so popular its workshops routinely have waiting lists, and PCP just released its first book-length publication, “Fostering Dialogue Across Divides: A Nuts and Bolts Guide from the Public Conversations Project.”

The Public Conversations Project helps people with fundamental disagreements
over divisive issues develop the mutual understanding and trust essential
for strong communities and positive action. It offers dialogue facilitation,
workshops, printed resources, meeting planning, and consultation services to
communities, organizations, and individuals from all walks of life.

Conversations Project, please see PCP’s website.
