Employee Ownership
Equity Summit

Oakland, CA | February 7-9, 2023
How can you unlock the power of this “best kept secret” for business transactions, strong local economies and equitable economic development?

Find out by joining Project Equity, peers from your region and across the nation in a two-and-a-half-day action-packed, practical meeting of the minds. Let us inspire you, give you real examples to help advance your work locally and provide an opportunity for connection with others in your community who share your goals.

Don’t miss the inaugural, annual Employee Ownership Equity Summit.

Join attendees from key regions across the United States, including:

  • Government
  • Business service providers
  • Exit planners
  • Funders
  • Community groups
  • Influencers

This is an invitation only event. If you have not received an invitation but wish to participate or if you are interested in bringing a cohort from your community, please reach out to Sarah McBroom.

Additional information

We do not want price to be a barrier to anyone’s participation and have set the price for this event as “pay what you can.” The suggested price is $650. If you are unable to fit that into your budget or wish to pay more to help subsidize others’ attendance, you can name your own price. Please contact Sarah McBroom with any questions.

Kicks off Tuesday, February 7th @ 4pm through Thursday, February 9th. Optionally, stick around on Friday for local Bay Area experiences, or take advantage of your special hotel pricing to stay through the weekend to take in the wine country or other local adventures.

The Waterfront Hotel in Oakland, a Joie de Vivre hotel, lets you experience the wonders of Jack London Square – the best entertainment district in Oakland – and the amazing views from the Oakland waterfront. We have a room block held at $195 per night. You can use this link to book your hotel room.

😀 Pro tip: For the best views, we suggest requesting a waterfront room on the 2nd or 3rd floor.

We recommend flying into Oakland (OAK – closest) or San Francisco (SFO) on Tuesday, February 7.

We are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy in order to fully enjoy each other and get the most from our convening. To this end, we ask all attendees to either provide proof of booster vaccination or a negative COVID test upon arrival. We will have tests available onsite. Additional information will be shared with registered guests in the coming months.
