We are accepting workshop proposals for the Worker Cooperative National Conference in Austin, Texas! All proposals are due by 5pm PST on Monday, March 14th.
From July 29th – July 31st, hundreds of worker cooperatives will join together to build a new economy based on shared ownership and real democracy. And we want you to add your voice. Propose a workshop and show us your most creative ideas in content and presentation.
What’s important to your workplace or organization? To the movement (locally and beyond?) To the sector(s) you operate in? What do we need to act on? What skills can you share to grow the democratic ownership movement across boundaries?
Our priority areas for this year include research, conversions, and building local capacity and campaigns. Wow us with your insight and excitement.
