Managing and Mentoring

> Introduction

The Cultural Human Resources Council (www.culturalhrc.ca) is a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening Canada's cultural workforce and improving the HR environment within the cultural sector. One of CHRC’s goals is to strengthen management in the cultural sector. Mentorship plays an important role in achieving this goal.

Experienced cultural managers and mentors representing cultural organizations from around the country with a wealth of experience and knowledge developed a competency chart and profile for cultural managers and one for mentors. The harts and profiles are innovative learning tools designed to assist producers managers and mentors working in the cultural sector.

The Cultural Human Resources Council strives to be at the centre of vision and forward thinking in the areas of cultural human resources development. We hope that this online Guide and resources will help you to achieve your professional vision, by providing a map of the skills and training you need to find success in your chosen field.

These tools, a reliable source for competencies for managers and mentors in the cultural industry, can be used to:

  • address gaps in formal education and training that exist in cultural management
  • increase understanding of the broad roles that managers and mentors play within cultural, educational and economic sectors
  • provide a reliable self-assessment tool for cultural managers, educators, artists, organizations and government to use for their own specific needs.

This online resource is designed to help you achieve your professional vision, by providing a map of the training needed to find success in your chosen field.
