of Diverse Talent Mapping
Arts & Culture
The pandemic has accelerated changes in the wider arts & culture environment, shifting focus towards the hyperlocal; the community on the doorstep. Additionally, we increasingly see organisations challenged around employee current and past experience and the debate about how we see our heritage and culture.
Leaders of art & culture organisations must navigate these challenges along with complex relationship with government and funding bodies, all while ensuring employees are supported and engaged. They will need a driving passion for the work they do, resilience, top-class ambassadorial instincts and the right relationships in place.
Be it securing future funding, reaching new audiences or making funds go further, our expert team will act as a trusted partner to understand your organisations unique challenges and objectives and strengthen your leadership team and capabilities to help you reach your goals.
Since inception in 2006, Green Park has been mapping diverse talent and building networks and processes which ensure, for us, that inclusion is institutional. This means that we not only deliver more diverse candidate lists than our competitors, but our broad candidate networks trust us, confide in us, and select us.
For Arts & Culture organisations wanting to leverage the power of collective difference, we help them to attract, acquire, retain, and develop leadership talent to which they may otherwise have not had access or who would have overlooked. As a result, we have an excellent track record placing diverse leaders with cross-sector experience that truly have the power to transform.
