Previously in CultureWork, Victoria Saunders explored what it means for the arts and culture sectors as they undergo generational leadership change. In this issue, Saunders continues the conversation on arts and cultural leadership, exploring the less often acknowledged, sometimes seemingly invisible, mid-career managers. Spanning the Baby Boom and Generation X populations, mid-career managers find themselves balancing the stresses of middle management careers with their high level of commitment to arts and culture. In this first of two articles, Saunders introduces this group of professionals and the ways in which they define themselves at this stage of their careers.
