Since December 2019, we've hosted in-depth webinars with 20 presenters on a range of topics. See below for titles with links to the recordings, plus a short blurb.
We hear about corporate social responsibility a lot, and the need for accountability in practice—not just in talk—is more important than ever. This webinar explores how broad-based ownership is being used to create more accountable economies. We’ll hear about decade of research on how corporate “multi-stakeholder initiatives” fail and why we need to rethink ownership from the ground up. We will also hear about the legacy of Associated Press, the cooperatively owned nonprofit news agency that was founded in 1846 and whose content reaches half the world’s population every day.
As inclusive design practices catch on, people in building tech tools are asking, "Who really manages the product roadmap? Who ultimately benefits?" This session features leaders from two startups currently working out a more cooperative approach to product design. They will tell us about the design practices that incorporate users, workers, and owners, including the trial and error and lessons along the way. We'll dedicate time to a facilitated discussion based on questions from participants, and conclude with strategies for more cooperative product design that you can try out in your startup or organization, too.
The COVID-19 crisis presents the greatest threat to community-based business in generations. But what if their employees and neighbors had the tools to get through this crisis in better shape, through an “exit to community”? This webinar presents strategies to help business transition to community and employee ownership, which could help ease the crisis upon us and aid in a just recovery.
