From Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy:
A time-tested approach to community economic development internationally, worker cooperative businesses are making inroads in the United States with regional initiatives in New York City, Madison, the Bay Area, and rural areas in the South. In this webinar, we aim to introduce worker-cooperative development as an innovative approach to poverty alleviation in U.S. communities through its focus on community wealth-building through worker-ownership and democratic decision-making. We’ll explore case studies to explore how funders and citizens can learn from what has been done and take advantage of new opportunities to support real change.
