Together and individually Baldwin and Ackerson speak frequently at the American Alliance of Museums annual meetings, at many regional museum association meetings, and last fall co-presented a half-day Leadership Forum at the American Association for State and Local History annual meeting.

They also co-teach a course on leadership for the Johns Hopkins University Museum Studies program. Baldwin and Ackerson are co-founders of the Gender Equity in Museums Movement (GEMM).

A reception will take place prior to the lecture at 5:30 pm.
