Molly Fannon

Molly Fannon is CEO of UN Live, a global museum designed to inspire hope and action – everywhere and with everyone – towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. UN Live will work through global networks, directly with individuals, in person and online, and through a “people’s house” in Copenhagen to inspire action for a better tomorrow.

Before joining UN Live, Molly was Director of the Smithsonian’s Office of International Relations and Global Program and transformed the Institution’s approach to global engagement. She led partnerships with major global organizations such as the World Economic Forum and governments worldwide and, as a top strategist and fundraiser, enabled entirely new programs and outlooks to emerge.

Molly’s early career centered around designing and managing largescale international development programs, funded by institutions such as USAID, the World Bank, the InterAmerican Bank, and the MCC.  Molly’s professional experience spans more than 40 countries on 6 continents. She is fluent in Spanish and proficient in Portuguese.

At NEMO’s European Museum Conference 2019, Molly Fannon will give a keynote on museums’ potential in regards to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals on Friday 8 August at 10:00.
