Funders embrace employee ownership as a strategy to strengthen communities

As we continue celebrating Employee Ownership Month, Project Equity asked members of its team to share thoughts and resources surrounding employee ownership.

“It’s inspiring to see so many funders embracing employee ownership as a strategy for strengthening communities and building wealth for workers, particularly workers of color and low-to-moderate incomes. Earlier this year, funders joined leading policymakers, practitioners, and experts at the Employee Ownership Ideas Forum, co-hosted by The Aspen Institute and the Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing at Rutgers University, to discuss how we can grow employee ownership for the shared benefit of American workers and businesses.”

We were honored to have our CEO, Evan Edwards, represent us on a panel discussion on Building an Inclusive Economy at the event.
