Riane Eisler & Sharon Sund: Building a Multiracial Democracy and a Caring Economy Through Partnerism

November, 2020

The Building a Multiracial Democracy and a Caring Economy Through Partnerism workshop is a collaboration between Riane Eisler, President of the Center for Partnership Studies and Sharon Sund, Program Manager at the Conflict Resolution Center. 

In this workshop, Riane Eisler develops the idea that to overcome racism, you have to overcome and change the social structure that created it. We move toward Partnerism when people recognize the investments made by people who are caring for others. • We can begin first by measuring the value of care. Second, by making visible the connection between the devaluation of care and cycles of poverty. Third, by developing cohesive policies to support partnership families. And fourth, by making the business case for the value of care.
