Managing and Mentoring

> Home

The baby boom generation is steadily leaving the workforce or moving to reduced hours and/or different working relationships. Non-profits cannot compete with wages and benefits offered in the private and public sectors. In addition, younger workers are looking for ways to maintain work-life balance as they enter and move up in the workforce. All of these changes put pressure on organizations (including arts and heritage organizations) to recruit and retain skilled leaders and workers.

This site is full of resources to aid managers in their work, help them improve their skills and recruit and mentor new talent.

The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) has worked with organizations and cultural managers from around the country to develop the tools needed to support the sector. These tools include:

  • Competency Chart and Profile for Cultural Managers
  • Competency Chart and Profile for Cultural Mentors
  • The Board Management Toolkit
  • A mentorship strategy

This site is for those working in and with cultural management. If you’re interested in learning more about how to become a Cultural Manager and ways into the field look at our Careers in Cultural Management site.
