Thanks to NYC NoWC’s Training Collective, we are pleased to host Foundations for Worker Cooperatives — a six month training series for and by worker co-ops. The Training Collective is made up of current and former worker owners whose goal is to teach and promote best practices from their experiences with guidance from the cooperative principles.

The series will be excellent for both groups interested in starting a worker cooperative, as well as existing worker owners who want to brush up on their skills.  All workshops are free. Simultaneous interpretation in English and Spanish will be provided. All workshops are drop in; no application is required.

  1. Is the recording of the first workshop still available? I’m finding y’all just now, and am super interested. I’m based in Brooklyn.
