Description

REGISTRATION OPENING SOON

The 2020 pandemic and the racial justice uprisings have pushed issues of racial and economic equity to the forefront in many communities, as well as in Community Development Corporations in MA. Worker-owned cooperatives provide a business model that can help BIPOC and underserved communities to build businesses and wealth by leveraging their collective social and economic assets. This workshop will introduce the co-op model, its strengths and challenges, and explore the role that CDCs in this state could play in strengthening worker ownership and economic democracy.
