Dr. Julie KennedyOehlert DNP, RN, is currently charged with overseeing a massive, partnership-based leadership development and culture-change initiative throughout the UCSD School of Medicine and UCSD Health Systems. In the exciting June 18, 2015 webinar, she described how Riane Eisler’s theory of power and partnership is guiding her efforts to reshape the human relationships at the heart of healthcare.

She revealed how the work of Riane Eisler offers the practical blueprint for transformative change.
