Mike Rudolph WIC Board Member photoMike Rudolph is an HR Business Partner at MaRS Discovery District where he provides human resources consulting support to several business units within the organization. This support includes: full-cycle recruitment, employee relations, performance management and compensation design. Prior to his position at MaRS, Mike was the Human Resources Manager for the Toronto International Film Festival.

Mike has a degree in English Literature from Concordia University and holds the Certified Human Resources Professional designation. He currently serves a member of the HR Committee for the Inside Out Film Festival.

We asked Mike a few questions, here's what he had to say:

Why did you decide to serve on our board?
I have been very familiar with WIC over the past few years and I feel very strongly about helping contribute to the artistic community in Ontario.

What do you enjoy the most about contributing to the cultural sector?
I grew up in an artistic family and I know the importance of having the arts in your life. I enjoy knowing that the small contributions that I can make to the sector could ultimately have an effect on proliferating the arts in other people's lives.

What is an interesting or fun project that you’re currently working on?
I am currently teaching a couple of classes in human resources for a program through the York Region Arts Council called Artrepreneur. It is a program that works with people who want to start their own creative businesses or organizations.

What’s your favourite cultural activity and why? Or what cultural activity do you like to participate in most often? 
I've always had a passion for film and I frequent film festivals and screenings throughout the city. I'm also a fan of live theatre so I try and attend musicals and plays whenever I can. 

Next week, we'll be introducing you to our third newly appointed board member, Erin Finlay. Stay tuned!
