Worker Co-Ops: An Innovative Strategy for Retaining & Building Local Business Ownership

AprilApr 30 2019 09:00am - 03:30pm UTC

Did you know that 26,000 businesses, employing more than 300,000 people in Kentucky are owned by baby boomers? Many have no succession plan and could be at risk of closing.

Did you know that transitioning to a worker cooperative or other form of employee ownership could keep these businesses thriving and locally-owned?

Come learn about this critical challenge facing our communities and some innovative strategies for retaining local business ownership. Presented by Project Equity, MACED and KCARD, the workshop will explore worker cooperatives and other employee-owned models, as well as best practices in helping businesses transition to employee ownership.

There will be two offerings of this workshop: Wed, March 27, from 9am-3:30pm in Hazard; and Tuesday, April 30, in Morehead. The event is free and lunch is provided. Please register in advance.
