Advancing Employee Ownership Through Cross-Sector Collaboration

Employee ownership is a growing trend that has the potential to advance the dignity and wealth of millions of workers and their communities. As baby boomer businesses retire, 3 million job-creating businesses will be sold or closed over the next decade. This creates a unique opportunity to transition those businesses into being employee-owned. Our goal for this session is to inspire leaders across the investment, healthcare, and corporate ecosystem to see their role as shared stewards of an alternative future where employee ownership is the norm.
