Join DCM as we Welcome Sarah Orleans

After 22 years at the helm of DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM), former President and CEO and now honorary founder, Susan Broad, has retired. Broad was DCM’s first hired visionary and led the Museum from its early years of existence in the lower level of the Wheaton Park District Community Center to the roughly 14,000 square foot, three-levels of play and learning it is today! 
At the same time we say farewell, we welcome our new President and CEO, Sarah Orleans. Sarah brings two decades of executive leadership experience, including work at two well-known nonprofit organizations on both the East and West Coasts.

Orleans will relocate to the Chicago region from Portland, Oregon, where she previously held the position of Executive Director of Portland Children’s Museum for eight years. Working alongside an education team internationally recognized for its expertise in early childhood education, Orleans established The Museum Center for Learning, dedicated to research and professional development for educators.

“We are fortunate to have attracted a children’s museum executive the caliber of Sarah Orleans, who combines a deep passion for our mission of early learning for all children with a 20-year track record of successful organizational leadership,” said David Carpenter, DCM Board Chairman.

Orleans has already begun her work with DCM and will permanently relocate to the Chicago region in the coming months.

Please join DCM in welcoming Sarah Orleans!
