Rethinking Ownership & Work: Shared Responsibility & Reward

Schumacher Center

As the 50th anniversary of the book Small is Beautiful, 2023 is our opportunity to advance solutions to today’s social, economic, and environmental challenges that build on Schumacher’s original vision. To meet this calling, the Schumacher Center is convening a monthly series featuring New Economic thinkers, builders and activists from a range of fields.

October’s panelists are those advancing forms of worker-ownership, proven models which empower employees while broadening the benefits of ownership. The event will be held virtually on Thursday the 19th at 2PM (EST). Registration is free.
