Mentor Application: Diversity in Arts Leadership Labs
DIAL Labs is a 3-part series of professional development series and mentorship for 30 mid-career and DIAL Internship alumni across arts disciplines to explore critical skills needed to advance from junior and mid-level positions to senior-level roles in the arts.

The Professional Development Series
Participants will engage in the Leadership Labs between May 2018 - July 2018 and will be led by executives of arts nonprofits, corporations who will facilitate workshops on topics like: marketing yourself and your arts organization; creative problem solving within constraints, and navigating traditional hierarchical and nonprofit structures.

Mentorship Expectations
The mentorship component is available for select participants once they have completed our 2018 Leadership Labs series and developed a set of professional goals. Participants will have access to senior arts or business leaders for the following 6-month period (August 2018 - February 2019) to serve as their professional champions, accountability partners, and advisors. Mentors will be matched with participants based on the preferences listed below.
