About this event

This two-part, interactive series is designed for people who are working in a worker co-op. They are most appropriate for those who have recently become members or who are thinking of applying to join their co-op, but anyone involved in a worker co-op is welcome to participate. Part I will cover basic definitions, statistics on the movement, and the co-op principles as applied to worker co-ops. Part II will cover governance and management principles in a worker co-op, and provide information about CWCF.

NOTE: If at all possible, attendees should participate in both Part One on February 23 and Part Two on March 3, at noon ET for one hour each.
