The Broad Diversity Apprenticeship Program Summary
The Broad museum aims to build a replicable model for hiring and training preparators/art handlers through apprenticeships, supported by partners from the non-profit, governmental, and commercial sectors, in order to diversify museum staff demographics while building a robust pipeline to professional arts and culture jobs through its Diversity Apprenticeship Program (DAP).
Reporting to the Head Preparator, who is the Project Director for DAP, the Program Manager (PM) oversees the administration of a grant awarded to The Broad to expand and formalize our current pilot preparators’ apprenticeship into a professional development program. The program manager will enhance a blended learning curriculum and will collaborate to develop training materials, hiring guidelines, job description templates, outreach methods, and will recruit, hire, and facilitate the training of up to sixteen apprentices for two consecutive nine-month long periods. The program manager will serve as a point person and spokesperson, locally and nationally, on the development and implementation of this equity-focused initiative that is designed to be adopted by organizations across the country. Additionally, the PM will evaluate and improve the program periodically, based on participant feedback, and performance metrics established and measured by a professional evaluator, to ensure success for participants.
