Re-Imagining Work:  The Worker Co-op Model

This year our topic will focus on how worker cooperatives are helping employees re-envision "work" and create businesses that are more equitable and just.

Worker owned cooperatives play a critical role in building community wealth by:

  • Creating quality, empowering jobs for community members and
  • Allowing employees to accumulate wealth and build assets through having an owernship stake in the cooperative

Join us on October 30 as speakers from across the country share their own stories of how cooperatives have impacted their lives and their communities.
