Featuring: Cooperative Fundamentals!
The 2021 conference will focus on Cooperative Fundamentals; webinar sessions will traverse our Cooperative Roots, Explore Resources for Cooperatives, and offer Introductions to the Many and Innovative Ways Cooperatives are used to Empower Economic Justice.
Sessions will introduce newbies to cooperatives and provide an opportunity for cooperators to broaden their knowledge of different types of cooperatives. Webinar workshops will also explore the Cooperative Ecosystem by discussing the resource organizations that support cooperatives. Webinars will convene live to promote discussion and participant interaction.
A second objective of our 2021 sessions is to adapt the live webinars for enduring use. Edited recordings will contribute to a library of online educational sessions that will be widely available after the conference. Our goal is to support cooperative strategies to address enduring problems, exacerbated by Covid-19: Achieving economic equity through business and job recovery, and fostering opportunities for cooperative home ownership and accessible childcare.
The series will explore how to start a cooperative, and the elements that preserve strong, enduring cooperatives. The workshops deepen understanding of the many resource organizations and their roles in supporting cooperatives through financing, education, and technical assistance.
More details of this informative series are forthcoming.
Please consider sponsoring this educational series!
We look forward to exploring cooperative fundamentals with you!!
