ASBN 2022 Conference:

Transforming Business Ownership for Social Justice

Dec 1 2022 @245 PM Eastern

This year, interest in employee ownership as a solution for income inequality has grown exponentially. Whether it be among business owners, state and local governments, investors and, of course, potential worker-owners, we see signs of an evolving, increasingly impactful movement.

Employee ownership is a strategy for employee engagement, quality jobs, business continuity / succession, and reducing inequality. Learn about different forms of broad-based employee ownership, how to get started on the “employee ownership onramp,” and more about the nuts and bolts of transition services and financing.
