Two Fall Cohorts of the Caring Economy Leadership Program are now forming
Learn how care = prosperity
In our current economic system, the gifts of the earth and the care we give to our children, elders and neighbors are invisible. If we are to have sustainable prosperity and put an end to the disproportionate poverty of women around the world, we must shift our thinking and finally recognize the real value of the care work that makes all other economic activity possible.
Cohort Yarrow starts Thursday, September 25, 2014
Meets online Thursdays September 25, October 2, 9, 30, November 6 10 am – 12 pm PT.
Tuition $345. Limited scholarships available; apply when you register.
“The Caring Economy Campaign provides practical, tangible solutions (legitimized by data and real-world examples) to help secure a sustainable future for humans and the natural world. The Leadership program provides the tools to impact public perception and policy.”
– Caring Economy Leadership Program graduate Leigh Anne Krantz, Producer and Journalist with KBOO Community Radio in Portland, Oregon, and member of the Bread and Roses Feminist News and Public Affairs Collective-the longest running feminist radio program in the United States.
