Employee Ownership Strategies for Economic Resilience and Equity: Pathways for Philanthropy
As we rebuild the economy under increasing stressors from climate change and globalization, do we stay the precarious path of narrowing ownership or take a more resilient approach to expand ownership, prioritize local economic development and build shared wealth?

Employee ownership is a powerful tool for resilience. It is gaining momentum as a catalyst for better jobs and economic stability for low wage workers. Thanks to an expanding community of organizations using business as a force for equity, and recent innovations in the field, it is beginning to realize its potential to increase economic opportunity and quantifiably address racial and gender wealth inequality. Intentional philanthropic-led investments can promote these goals of shared racial and economic equity through employee ownership.

On April 13, 2023 1:00 pm ET please join Asset Funders Network as we launch Employee Ownership a Pathway to Economic Resilience authored by Melissa Hoover, Co-Executive Director for Partnerships and Growth at the Democracy at Work Institute. Together we will discuss:

● What is employee ownership and what forms does it take?
● What is increasingly drawing philanthropy to worker ownership as a tool to address inequality?
● How can funders align investments in employee ownership to drive economic resilience and racial equity?
● What supportive models and policies can we lift -up to support philanthropy’s role in employee ownership?

AFN will be hosting regional breakout groups in some areas. If you are in the Greater NY Area (CT, NJ, NY) or the Carolinas and you are interested in a break out session, please indicate during registration.

This program is designed for both funders and practitioners who are currently invested in small business, employee ownership, job quality and racial equity strategies.
