Partners in Empowerment™ (PIE) is an ecologically inspired social & economic network united in action for a thriving, socially just future.
Whether a media group leads a cause-based marketing campaign to stop AIDS, a university creates greener technology, or an artist inspires a child in need, social, economic and environmental impact can be deepened and sustained through multi-sector collaboration.
Comprised of six mutually supportive sectors, Partners in Empowerment™ understand, that by bringing the best of our resources and ideas to the table, we build a better world for humanity.
Wondering, "Where is government?"
Empowering all voices to be heard, PIE serves as a participatory framework that can be used both by government agencies to support inclusive civic engagement or independently by citizens as a self-organizing tool. Uniting PIE from the ground up is the foundation of EW's 7 Stages to Sustainability approach.
How to scale-up local solutions?
Nothing exists in a vacuum. While basic 7SS tools help communities to be more resilient, building robust local economies calls for a network of cross-sector global partners advancing a resilient ecosystem of equitable trade opportunities and value added investments.
Through The Global Summit and other outreach events, EW cultivates a cross-sector community of practice known as Partners In Empowerment (PIE) - united in action around the 7SS sustainable development framework.
To bring 7SS to the entrepreneurs who need it most, EW is co-developing a multi-sector resource exchange enterprise called 1PIE.org .
Through 1PIE, 7SS serves to index a shared knowledge base where entrepreneurs can share their impact, identify needed skills, appropriate technologies, showcase local assets, and increase access to ethical markets. The first 1PIE application tracks the impact of local projects, and will be supported with 7SS online trainings.
As we develop a comprehensive social impact toolkit via 1PIE, we recommend:
