We build and support a diverse community of arts and culture leaders who drive inspiring change for the future.
Inequity is an injustice that we must do everything within our power to address. We actively choose diverse cohorts and work directly with leaders and communities to shift mindsets and conversations and provide tools to address imbalances.
Difficult conversations are an essential part of meaningful change, and the force that drives action. Our long-term support helps the visionary leaders of today and tomorrow have the important and sometimes challenging discussions that enable more potent strategic decisions.
Bringing together unlike leaders from a diverse range of disciplines, geographies and roles yields powerful results: wide-ranging networks and unexpected partnerships that spark transformative change.
With new strategies and skills, leaders can more effectively challenge existing processes and methods. We develop and deliver programming in partnership with leading thinkers and academics, chosen for their relevance, rigor and reputation.
During times of social and political uncertainty, leaders re-think their relevance, business models and impact. We give them entrepreneurial tools to examine, test and implement new approaches.
Our programs provide access to academia and opportunities. They mix skillsets and mindsets, broaden perspectives and networks. They remove silos and open doors, pushing boundaries and what’s possible.

“Being taken out of your comfort zone and looking at decisions that made your organization vulnerable was tough. But the Chief Executive Program’s lessons helped me build skills that create even more value for our community and the support of my incredible cohort helped me share a vision more effectively with both partners and my team.”
