Join us October 3rd for an interactive online dialog on the transformational possibilities of women’s leadership with Riane Eisler, Jamia Wilson, and Carla Goldstein. We can only build a more just and caring world if we enact leadership in ways that cultivate partnership rather than domination. But what does it really look like to “do power differently”? How do we support one another in asserting and implementing bold visions grounded in the life-giving values of care, mutuality, diversity, and creativity? Tune in and be inspired!
Power With and Power Through: How Women Are Leading Differently for a Just and Caring World
Wednesday October 3, 2018
11 am – 12:30 pm Pacific Time/ 2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern Time
After centuries of domination-style leadership, re-claiming the value of women and the Feminine is the essential work of our time. In this interactive online event, groundbreaking author and women’s rights activist Riane Eisler will talk with author/activist/storyteller Jamia Wilson, a powerful voice on feminist and women’s rights issues, and Carla Goldstein, cofounder of the Omega Women’s Leadership Center.
These three powerful leaders will share provocative perspectives on how to transform the ways we express power and re-cast our notions of leadership itself. Eisler, Wilson, and Goldstein will help us think more expansively and imaginatively about issues like:
- How do we support one another in asserting and implementing bold visions grounded in the life-supporting values of care, mutuality, diversity, and creativity?
- How do we act together in ways that honor and respect the full complexity of one another’s identities, experiences, histories and perspectives?
- How do we bring about a cultural transformation from domination to partnership?
- How do we recognize and call out languages and practices that help maintain systems of domination?
- What are restorative practices that can help us re-inhabit an integrated way of being and knowing that includes mind, body, and intuition?
- How do we stay connected to the sustainable sources of energy and courage we need to undertake the challenging, long-haul work of making the world anew?
People of all genders who care about building a partnership world won’t want to miss this inspiring and provocative conversation. Bring your questions and concerns to this interactive dialogue!

Riane Eisler is President of the Center for Partnership Studies and internationally known as a systems scientist, attorney pioneering the human rights of women and children, and author of the bestseller The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future, now in 26 foreign editions and 56 US printings. As an early feminist leader, she co-founded the first Women’s Center on the West Coast, wrote a brief to the US Supreme Court making the then-radical argument that women should be considered persons under the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, and helped change discriminatory laws, such as rape laws that put the victim on trial. Her many books include The Equal Rights Handbook (the only mass paperback on the proposed Equal Rights Amendment), Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, and the Politics of the Body and The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics, hailed by Nobel Peace Laurete Desmond Tutu as “a template for the better world we have been so urgently seeking.” Dr. Eisler lectures worldwide, with platforms including the United Nations General Assembly, the U.S. Department of State, Congressional briefings, universities, corporations, conference keynotes, and events hosted by heads of State. Dr. Eisler is co-founder of the Caring Economy Campaign, the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence (SAIV), and Editor in Chief of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies, an online peer-reviewed journal housed at the University of Minnesota that was inspired by Eisler’s work.
Jamia Wilson is many things: An activist. A feminist. A storyteller. A mediamaker. But more than anything, she is a natural-born thought leader. As Executive Director and Publisher of Feminist Press at City University of New York, the former Women, Action, and the Media Executive Director, TED Prize Storyteller, and former Vice President of Programs at The Women’s Media Center, Jamia has been a powerful force in the social justice movement for nearly a decade. As a leading voice on feminist and women’s rights issues, her work and words have appeared in and on several outlets such as New York Magazine, The Today Show, and The Washington Post. She’s also a staff writer for Rookie and has contributed to several books such as Madonna and Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop, and I Still Believe Anita Hill. But what we’re most excited about is her own book that she’s currently writing about Beyonce and feminism. (Yes, really.) It’s no surprise she was named in Refinery29’s “17 Faces of the Future of Feminism”.
