2017 Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy
June 9, 2017 - June 11, 2017
We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy (ECWD) will be held this June 09-11, 2017 at Fordham University Lincoln Center in New York City in partnership with NYC Network of Worker Cooperatives.
The ECWD is a biannual conference of nearly 400 people that provides practical tools, networking, and strategies for worker-owners, union members, technical assistance providers, community organizers, and scholars. We support an economy that utilizes cooperative and democratic organizational structures to support equitable systems for exchanging goods, services & products and stewardship of the commons for mutual benefit by all. We believe that democratic workplaces are the fundamental building blocks that power our work towards economic, social, and environmental justice and solidarity.
