National Cultural HR Forum
The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) will continue "Building Bridges" between cultural leaders and educators/trainers at its national HR Forum in Toronto on September 27 and 28, 2012.
The focus of this unique gathering of cultural leaders, key educators and policy makers from across the country will be training needs and gaps in the sector. Through presentations on best practices, thoughtful discourse and provocative discussion, the forum will highlight examples of industry /education collaboration that respond to immediate industry needs, examine the importance of professional development and mentorships, and encourage participants to press for solutions to training challenges.
As a leader in addressing HR issues in the Canadian cultural sector for over 15 years, CHRC has played a pivotal role in bringing partners together to identify the HR needs of employers and cultural workers. Through its extensive networks in both the cultural and education sectors, CHRC collaborates with and encourages stakeholders to ensure that emerging cultural workers acquire the skills and training that industry needs to maintain Canada's economic advantage.
In a highly competitive global marketplace, Canadian cultural products are strong contenders, but the key to our continuing success is that our workforce be on the cutting edge of creation, innovation and production of cultural content.
Cultural and educational leaders will attend because they recognize the importance of this conversation for the ongoing health of the cultural sector, they can network with colleagues and collaborators, and share their successes and challenges.
CHRC's national HR Forum 2012 offers a unique opportunity for all that to happen.
