Museum of Science and Industry gets a new CEO, its first Black and first woman leader | Chicago Tribune

Chevy Humphrey, the newly appointed president and CEO of Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, told two very on-point stories about her career path.

When Humphrey was interviewing for her first job at the Arizona Science Center, the leading science museum in Phoenix, Sheila Grinell, the then-CEO, asked Humphrey where she saw herself in five years.

“I said, ‘Respectfully, your job,’” Humphrey recalled replying. And with Grinell’s mentorship, she would make it there, almost on schedule.
