Topics: Nurturing our Humanity and Getting Over Domination by making Partnerism Mainstream
On this week's episode of Solutions News, we explore the benefits of a Partnership Model as opposed to Domination Systems with special guest Dr. Riane Eisler, President of the Center for Partnership Studies. Author and social scientist Dr. Eisler, among many other things, is a holocaust escapee from Austria who has both a Juris Doctorate and a PhD and has been a Fellow of the World Business Academy for almost three decades. In the show, we explore how human societies can be categorized along a continuum of how strongly it supports general human growth and development (the Partnership Model) versus how strongly it supports the rise of a small class of people on the backs of the rest (the Domination System).

Riane Eisler is a social systems scientist, cultural historian, and attorney whose research, writing, and speaking has transformed the lives of people worldwide. Her newest work, Nurturing Our Humanity: How Domination and Partnership Shape Our Brains, Lives, and Future, co-authored with anthropologist Douglas Fry published by Oxford University Press in July 2019, shows how to construct a more equitable, sustainable, and less violent world based on partnership rather than domination.
Dr. Eisler is president of the Center for Partnership Studies (CPS), dedicated to research and education, Editor-in-Chief of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies, an online peer-reviewed journal at the University of Minnesota that was inspired by her work, keynotes conferences nationally and internationally, has addressed the United Nations General Assembly, the U.S. Department of State, and Congressional briefings, and has spoken at corporations and universities worldwide on applications of the partnership model introduced in her work.
