Talent to Lead “T2L” is a new program of the Cultural Human Resources Council designed to support mid-career cultural managers who are seeking to advance to the executive level of leadership in Canada’s cultural sector.
CHRC is pleased to announce that its Talent to Lead program www.talenttolead.ca T2L is now receiving applications. This professional development program is designed for mid-career cultural leaders seeking advancement in their career. T2L offers an opportunity to learn in a peer-group setting while also getting expert support from executive leaders in the field.
To date, 42 talented mid-career leaders from across the country and across the sector participated in T2L and 25% of T2L participants have since moved to executive level positions within cultural organizations.
T2L3 will focus on selecting 20 cultural leaders from Indigenous, racialized and official language minority communities across Canada to participate in the program.
The program is guided by a national steering committee and will consist of a series of learning webinars that focus on leadership and HR management fundamentals and competencies. Alongside the webinar learning series, participants will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with an executive level mentor and gain insight into how to put their learning into practice to advance their career.
As well as the mentorships and webinar training, this year there will be regional gatherings across the country to bring together participants from previous cohorts for a one-day learning exchange. The learning exchange will include training on harassment and an opportunity to discuss key issues impacting the sector today and form the basis for a white paper from the perspective of current cultural leaders across Canada.
