GLI is hiring a part-time Program Coordinator. For more information, view the job description.

The Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University (GLI at CGU) is dedicated to advancing thoughtful leadership in the museum field. GLI offers executive educational programs, special events, and an online forum to help forward-thinking museum professionals develop their knowledge and skills in order to manage change and forge success.

GLI is a catalyst in engaging dialogues for all seeking to guide museums towards increased social value and greater sustainability. Museums in the twenty-first century are dynamic cultural organizations that are called to embrace innovation, collaboration, and synergy. Museum leaders face evolving challenges with rapidly-changing technologies, shifting philanthropy, and emerging global audiences. Today’s museum leaders are connectors who cultivate skills in management, persuasion, and self-awareness to work effectively with their staff, boards, and wider audiences. In response, GLI offers opportunities to blend theory and practice, synergizing connections at the individual, institutional, and societal levels.

After a hiatus in 2013, GLI is now re-launching programs under the new leadership of Executive Director, Melody Kanschat and Assistant Director, Toni Guglielmo. Applications are being accepted through January 17, 2014 for the three-week 2014 Executive Education Program for Museum Leaders. Visit 2014 GLI Program for more information.
