Icelandic Opera's Steinunn Ragnarsdóttir Chosen to Participate in Chief Executive Program of NAS

Monday, August 5, 2019  

Congratulations to Steinunn Ragnarsdóttir, CEO and Artistic Director of Icelandic Opera on being selected as one of the exceptional leaders to participate in National Arts Strategies' Chief Executive Program. 

At a time when many arts and culture executives feel increasingly isolated and under-supported, the Chief Executive Program connects an international cohort of CEOs to explore leadership and strengthen their efforts to drive change in their organizations, communities and in the cultural field.

Begun in 2011, the Chief Executive Program is a blended education program for artistic and executive leaders who are leading change across the world. ISPA's CEO David Baile was part of the 2013-14 cohort of the program. Other notable ISPA members who participated in the program in the past include Mary Lou Aleskie, Anthony Sargent, and Matthew VanBesien.

Over the next ten months, the cohort of selected executives will learn new frameworks with industry-leading faculty, engage in one-on-one reflective exercises with NAS-trained coaches and collaborate with one another. Convenings at Harvard Business School and a learning retreat location will support the cohort in building a community of practice they will call on for the rest of their careers. At the program’s conclusion, participants will join an international community of nearly 250 program alumni.
