On April 22, 2020, the Museum Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University (MLI@CGU) launched POLARIS: The Museum Mentor Network, a new online mentoring platform. Professionals working in or with museums across the sector will be able to participate in this opportunity to create meaningful and collegial relationships, and to develop their leadership skills by being mentored or mentoring others.
