“T2L is designed to prepare Canadian cultural managers for positions of greater responsibility and leadership. A deeper and more personalized approach to succession planning on a national scale can hardly be imagined.”

About T2L

Talent to Lead (T2L) is designed for mid-career cultural managers seeking to take their careers to the next level of leadership. It creates opportunities to learn from one another and build relationships with other leaders, while also getting expert support from top-notch executives in the field.

T2L 3 will focus on selecting 20 leaders from across disciplines and across Canada from Indigenous, culturally diverse and official language minority communities. 

Each month, participants will sign into a learning webinar that focuses on management fundamentals and competencies sourced from CHRC’s HR Management Toolkit. Each session will cover a variety of leadership and human resources management topics, have take-aways, stream video interviews with executive cultural leaders and offer an opportunity for a Q&A with our expert facilitators.

Alongside the webinar learning series, you will have the opportunity to work one-on-one in a mentorship relationship with an executive level leader and gain insight into how to put your learning into practice to advance your career.

T2L will equip you to:

  • understand factors driving innovation and success in Canada’s cultural sector
  • align your professional interests, capacities and skillset with future opportunities
  • recognize how management skills impact the success of your career
  • learn concrete skills that support your growth and development
  • have one-on-one support from top-notch executives in your field
  • have tools to lead your team, and work with partners and supporters
  • identify concrete steps you can take immediately to build your capacity to lead
