Women on Purpose for the Planet
In this interview with Terra Christoff for the Women on Purpose for the Planet series, Riane Eisler comments, “We are creating new narratives about our human nature. We’re learning from neuroscience that whether our capacities for caring and consciousness—and alternately, for insensitivity, cruelty and destructiveness—are expressed largely depends on the cultural environments we create. The changing of the story is the discovery that we’re predisposed for caring, creativity and consciousness as a species".

Jason Campbell M.L.S. , partnership and cultural change agent, is applying his degree in legal studies and his background as a caring economy and partnership leader to support a new framework for organizational negotiations grounded in partnership principles. "For our work to bring about the cultural transformation we seek, we need a holistic framework that includes partnership and domination systems. For this to be realistic, we must have a new understanding of negotiating behaviors and individual styles. As the saying goes, 'An intelligent person can benefit from others without hurting them, as a bee can sip from the nectar of a flower without harming it'. In partnership systems, we strive to negotiate with the focus on how we can actualize the greatest benefit for all."

Deeanna Burleson, Ph.D. , partnership leader, organizational consultant and faculty at the Complex Science Institute, UNC Charlotte, writes in her new blog post Organization as Community: Showing Up As Partnership Practitioners , "The topic of partnership in organizations is very dear to my heart and soul. Over the years as a nursing healthcare professional in the hierarchical and most often dominating environment of healthcare systems: military, veterans and civilian systems, I have had many experiences of feeling the brunt of domination in action and, sadly, often aligning with the environment and dominating others. To connect with others and to thrive in organizational culture, it has been my experience there has to be trust, engagement, mutual support and respect; a partnership between those involved."
