“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 leaders 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 support from top-notch executives in the field.

T2L 4 will focus on selecting 20 leaders from Indigenous, racialized communities and official language minority communities that are currently working in a variety of cultural organizations and practices across Canada. 

Each month, participants will sign into a learning webinar that focuses on leadership and human resources management fundamentals and competencies. Each session will cover a variety of topics, have take-aways, stream video interviews with executive cultural leaders and offer an opportunity for break-out discussions and 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.

CHRC will host regional gatherings in cities across Canada to bring together participants from Cohorts 1, 2 & 3 and interested mentors to discuss key issues that impact leading in the cultural sector today in Canada.
