6 sectors of Partners In Empowerment (PIE) & the unique roles we play
Empowering all voices to be heard, PIE can be used as needed by government agencies for civic engagement or by community members as a self-organizing tool.
Rather than focusing on target issues such as health, economics, or technology, PIE emphasizes peoples', organizations', and businesses' ROLES based on what each has to contribute based on locally determined needs;
PIE roles are universal and can be applied to any challenge a community or region faces, advancing a whole-system approach to a sustainable world;
As it is complimentary to issue or needs oriented wheels, such as the 12 point Peace Room model forth by Barbara Marx-Hubbard; PIE promotes collaboration across social & environmental movements.
The following six sectors are the foundation of the PIE Framework, Network & 1PIE.org:
Artists in Action - Visual, performing, or poets harnessing their creative power for positive social change. "Artists speak with integrity and the world listens".
For-Impact Organizations – NGOs, Foundations, and Government Agencies that exist to advance Social, Economic, and/or Environmental impact.
Educational Institutions – Schools, research groups, and their leaders advancing evidence based knowledge, and innovation for a sustainable world.
Sustainable Businesses - For-profit entrepreneurs, investors and agencies harnessing market forces to create an economy that honors the web of life.
Responsible Media Groups – Journalists, Communications Platforms, News Agencies, and Events upholding truth in media to support an informed public.
1PIE.org is a public-private partnership between Empowerment Works, 1PIE Technologies and a variety of Open Source development partners integrating mutually supportive tools to form a comprehensive, global collaboration system. Learn more
