Geovette E. Washington, senior vice chancellor and chief legal officer for the University of Pittsburgh, has accepted a position on the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh's board of trustees. She will serve a three-year term. Washington came to Pitt in August 2015, after working in private practice with both corporate and nonprofit clients and, most recently, as general counsel and senior policy advisor in the Office of Management and Budget at the White House.
“Coming from Washington, D.C., a place with many museums, I am interested to see how a city this size maintains its world-class museums,” said Washington. “This post will give me insight into how the museum runs and how it continues to be a first-rate facility.”
