Join us for a 4-part virtual series, “Creative Leadership for Changing Times.” This special series focuses on key aspects of creative leadership and has been designed for arts education leaders from counties, districts, teacher leaders, non-profit arts leaders, and others interested in this topic. The series, presented by CCSESA (California County Superintendents Educational Services Association) will be facilitated by Dr. Gary Waddell and Pat Wayne and will include additional presenters.

The series will consist of a blend of information and resources as well as creating space for participants to learn from one another on topics such as:

  • Collective Impact – How can leaders and organizations work in concert to accomplish equity-centered goals for meaningful change?
  • Creative Leadership – What does creative leadership look like? How can the leader employ a creative mindset in their work?
  • Voices from the Field – What is working in the field? Hear from other leaders from across California about their own learnings from what is working and what is not.
  • Trust, Listening, and Empathy in Action – How do we cultivate these leadership components in changing times?

This series is committed to establishing a Learning Community where participants will have ample opportunities to engage with one another on program content, to share personal perspectives and strategies, and to interact with arts leaders in job-alike roles, county, district, and non-profit arts leaders by region, and with statewide colleagues engaged in this critical work.
