Applications Open For Second Cohort of Talent To Lead Program

Mid-career cultural managers seeking to take their careers to the next level of leadership can apply now for the second cohort of CHRC's Talent to Lead program. 

The program creates opportunities for participants to learn from one another, build relationships with other leaders, and gain expert support from executives in the field. 

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

Alongside the webinar learning series, participants 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 their learning into practice to advance their career.
