About this event:

Caring economies, circular economies, and degrowth economies can lead towards more gender justice and more eco-justice.

Shifting from devastating extractive and shortsighted greed and addiction-based economic models is imperative; we can shift to values in practice, including caring and partnership among people and with nature.

In the words of Audre Lorde, “the masters tools will not dismantle the master’s house”, and ending women’s poverty will not happen using individualistic pathways of financial achievement. New (and old) ways to share care, wealth, and community resilience will be explored in this session, along with the political pathways to make this possible.

Speakers will include:

Dr. Riane Eisler, President of the Center for Partnership Systems

Theresa Ardler: Aboriginal Activist, Artist and Director of Gweagal Cultural Connections

Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis, Executive Director of the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights, and Social Justice

Dr. Jason Hickel (invited), economic anthropologist, author, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts
