Limited Capacity seats available

Worker co-ops are a small part of our country's huge economy — in order to make a difference, we need to know how to communicate together, and play off of our collective strengths. This network gathering will explore the internal and external communications about this movement through marketing, policy, and community engagement. What are the opportunities before us to bring worker co-ops into the national spotlight? How do we articulate our model in a way that illustrates the equitable solution that is worker cooperatives? We'll explore the avenues and messages that will help us to coordinate effectively together.

We'll map out the big ways in which worker co-ops have an opportunity to make a mark — both ones that are currently in motion, and rallying points for our ecosystem to develop. There will be strategic group-thinking around policy, messaging, and ecosystem communication to help us leverage the best of the many players in this field.

Coordinators: Mo Manklang and Morgan Crawford from the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives
