Thanks to the Center for Partnership Studies


Thanks to our sponsor, the Center for Partnership Studies!

Founded in 1987, after publication of Riane Eisler’s The Chalice and The Bladethe Center for Partnership Studiesprovides new knowledge, insights, interventions, and practical tools for cultural transformation from domination systems to partnership systems. CPS’s research, education, grassroots empowerment, and policy initiatives demonstrate that raising the status of women and the “feminine” is key to building a more equitable, caring, and peaceful world. The Center’s programs focus on promoting human rights and nonviolence, gender and racial equity, childhood development, and new metrics that highlight the financial contribution of the caregiving work primarily performed by women worldwide.

CPS research led to the first empirical study showing the relationship between women's status and a nation’s quality of life and, most recently, the development of CPS’s Caring Economy Campaign’s Social Wealth Economic Indicators—new metrics that, unlike GDP and other economic measures, have a strong gender component and verify the economic value of the work of caring for people and nature. The Center’s Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence (SAIV) program advocates for ending violence against women and children as a top social, religious, and political priority. CPS’s educational activities range from the Caring Economy Campaign’s Congressional briefings, publications such as the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies at the University of Minnesota, online resources such as “fast facts sheets” featuring data from Social Wealth Economic Indicators, and webinars and online courses, including Dr. Eisler’s five-part course on cultural and personal transformation, Changing Our Story, Changing Our Lives, starting November 9, 2017.
