Leadership and Learning
Since 2009, CPS’s Leadership and Learning Programs have reached thousands of leaders from all across the United States and countries around the world. Our online courses and webinars create shared foundations of language and understanding, inspire effective action and forge connections across diverse geography, disciplines, and walks of life.
The Partnerism Campaign
The Partnerism Campaign was launched in 2020 to activate a movement to bring visibility to Partnerism as a mainstream concept. Partnerism, first defined in Riane Eisler's The Real Wealth of Nations, is a socio-economic system where all relationships, institutions, policies, and organizations are based on principles of equitable partnership that supports linking rather than ranking and hierarchies of actualization rather than hierarchies of domination.
The Social Wealth Index
The Center for Partnership Studies is building the Social Wealth Index (SWI), a comprehensive metric of the economic value of the work of caring for people and nature. This index, essential in our time, shows what investments are needed for a better quality of life and a strong economy.
Caring and Connected Parenting
The Caring and Connected Parenting Program encourages caring family relations that respect and empower children. Findings from psychology and neuroscience show that the degree of partnership or domination in our foundational human relations directly affects how our brains develop. The quality of our family relationships and social structures are a cornerstone of partnership systems.
Partnership Scholars Award
CPS offers an International Prize for Research, Study, and Dissemination of Partnership Studies, with the first prize in 2018 honoring the founder of the Partnership Studies Group at the University of Udine in Italy. More awards and prizes are being developed to inspire and recognize excellence in partnership-related scholarship, writing, and the arts.
