The Potential of Partnership
We know that, as a global culture, we’ve crossed a threshold into a new era of unprecedented complexity, pace, and diversity, an era that brings with it vexing challenges that no one person or group can address adequately on their own. The only successful way forward calls for equally unprecedented levels of partnership and co-leadership in all areas of our lives, from personal to professional, from social to political.
The Practice of Partnership
Evolving Partnership/Women & Men programs are designed as an orientation to this new era. They are an opportunity to practice principles and skills that will allow us to navigate our changing landscape and engage one another with a sense of meaning and purpose. When we develop our capacity for partnership—when partnership becomes our way of being in the world—we live more fully into the “better angels of our nature” as individuals and intimate partners, as colleagues and leaders.
Why “Women and Men?” A key to our work is the creative power of differences and the way new possibilities emerge naturally within the “tension of opposites.” We have found that the territory of gender is a rich and fertile practice field in which to activate and explore this guiding principle. We have also learned that when women and men gather in a safe space and bear witness to one another’s experience, an important kind of healing takes place that opens doors to partnership that were previously closed.
The Promise of Partnership
In over 20 years of work, we’ve found another striking benefit of bringing people together to explore conflict and partnership in a context of gender. The vulnerability involved in sharing experiences related to gender generates a depth of intimacy and connection in a group of people. When that sense of our common humanity is activated, it opens a back door into productive conversations across other differences like race, sexual orientation, or religion.
In that spirit, we offer programs to groups and organizations already building relationships across cultural or religious differences and who would like to deepen those partnerships. As that work unfolds, our intention is to train men and women from those groups to co-facilitate Evolving Partnership/Women & Men workshops for their fellow members.
