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.

• You are an experienced program or project leader with strong organizational skills, and the ability to execute on both internal and external priorities;
• You bring experience in community outreach and/or recruiting, having worked in traditionally underrepresented communities;
• You bring prior experience developing training and mentoring participants from a wide array of constituencies across racial and socioeconomic demographics; you are comfortable with customizing your approach to effectively support each participant considering his/her unique perspective and background
• You have grant management and administration experience; you are comfortable with tracking and managing reporting requirements to meet federal compliance guidelines
• You have exceptional oral and written communication skills; you have served as an external spokesperson for your organization and successfully engaged with stakeholders throughout the community
• You are comfortable with tracking and interpreting data, capable of leveraging the analysis of program outcomes to influence iteration in program design;
• You have demonstrated the ability to influence, inspire, guide, and direct a project or group of people towards a defined goal while working effectively with peers, staff, and external partners;
• You thrive while working collaboratively with team members in an innovative, fast-paced, and entrepreneurial environment;
• You are empathetic and adaptable. Your teammates describe you as a solutions-oriented colleague who is always willing to pitch in when required;
