DUX is the Latin word for leader, and with the creation of this annual award, the Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) plans to honour Canada's cultural HR leaders who have contributed to the dynamic and inspiring cultural life we enjoy in this country. In 2012 we honour those unsung heroes who selflessly dedicate their time and energies to nurture young talent: mentors.
The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is pleased to issue a call for nominations for its inaugural DUX Award for Outstanding Mentor, to be presented at CHRC's national HR Forum, Building Bridges, on Friday, September 28, 2012. The Outstanding Mentor will receive a complimentary registration to the Forum. The prize includes a donation by CHRC of $1,000 to an organization selected by the Mentor.
Cultural workers -- here is your chance to recognize and celebrate that amazing mentor who changed your life!
Tell us how your mentor helped you choose or establish your career, realize your potential, refine your art practice or navigate your way through the vast sector you have chosen to work in. Deadline for nominations July 13th 2012.
