Susan Carter Speaks on the Caring Economy

Dr. Susan Carter, chair of the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies department, spoke on the Caring Economy Leadership Program on Blog Talk Radio, hosted by MAIS student Cathy Bennett, in August 2013. Sara Saltee, director of learning and leadership programs for the Caring Economy Campaign, was also interviewed.

Bennett writes:

Even amid hopelessness due to never-ending world problems, small coalition-building organizations are seeding our future with promise. Regardless of regressive backward steps into oppressive aspects of our cultural prescription towards domination, courageous leaders are making in-roads into a more partnership-oriented, caring way of existing together. One can see evidence of Riane Eisler's partnership model in the framework for a "caring economy" that is now gaining traction across different professions and disciplines. Beyond just accepting the status quo as the only way possible, Eisler's foresight is coming true through each person who is exposed to the principles of partnership and the need for a caring economy.

Dr. Susan Carter is the chair of the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies department. The master's program offers concentrations in organizational and leadership studies, spiritual traditions, gerontology and liberal arts.
