NextGen Now is offered to early career professionals in the arts, cultural, and museum sectors. The program delivers a multifaceted learning experience that includes lectures, workshops, peer conversations, self-directed reading and journaling, group problem-solving exercises, panels with senior-level executives, and a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion issues. The NextGen Now experience encourages participants to use their newfound insights to approach relevant challenges in their workplace and develop a meaningful plan for success throughout their early career years.
NextGen Now 2015 ran as a blended learning program with online modules and residency at Claremont Graduate University. The NextGen Now 2017 Summit: Empowering Pathways explored topics on diversity, equity, and inclusion, leadership development, career strategies, and capacity building and sustainability for the next generation of leaders in the field.
