We are very excited to work with the mentors of Growing Earned Revenue Mentoring (GERM) Program, who will be providing one-to-one learning to GERM participants who have identified specific learning priorities related to identifying, increasing and/or diversifying their organization’s earned revenue streams.

Like the GERM participants, our diverse group of mentors represent different disciplines and industries, and come from organizations and professional backgrounds that serve different commitments of the creative, arts and heritage community.

We asked the mentors a series of questions, and they provided some great answers and advice that may apply to you regardless of where you are in your career. Through our social media we share some GERM Program mentor quotes and images. If you missed the messages from our mentors you can check them out here.

Here they are, the wonderful GERM mentors who we appreciate for joining us to continue this work:
