Building a Just Economy with Employee Ownership
Across the country, communities are faced with income and wealth inequality, exploitative working conditions, and displacement. As cities think about how to support workers and small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, worker ownership offer a solution to assist with creating quality jobs, building local wealth, and eliminating disparities. For legacy businesses owners, entrepreneurs and workers, worker ownership can provide long-term job stability and wealth creation.
Join us as we hear from Democracy at Work Institute and three cities who are investing in worker ownership development.
This webinar is part of Building Equitable Communities, a series from the National League of Cities and Citi. This series will explore how community land trusts create lasting affordability in housing and how worker cooperatives can build wealth and create quality jobs.
