The Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University will develop, launch, and manage an online mentoring network for museum professionals. The initiative will leverage the institute's experience in developing leadership programs, its alumni network, and the resources created through "Nexus: Leading Across Boundaries," a project previously funded by IMLS. Project components will include the development of an online mentoring platform with a variety of resources. Participants can post their profiles on the platform and find a matching mentor through a self-selecting process. The institute will offer six online mentor training webinars for museum professionals with at least seven years of experience. It will also facilitate three annual mentoring cycles that will include recruitment for mentors/mentees, mentor training webinars, quarterly newsletters, leadership development resources, and year-end evaluations and action plans. The project will also include two regional summits to explore best practices in inclusion, diversity, equity, and access.
