Worker cooperators, unions, developers, allies, funders, investors, and visionaries — join us this September 14-16!
This moment in U.S. history is pivotal — we are taking this opportunity to catalyze workers across the country, joining with the larger cooperative and economic justice movements to create and maintain stable, empowering jobs through employee ownership.
The latest State of the Sector report by the Democracy at Work Institute and U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives covers research on worker-owned enterprises through 2015. Three years into surveying worker cooperatives on a national scale, we are positioned to analyze stability and change—demographically, and in terms of business performance, wages, and benefits.
The Democracy at Work Institute is happy to celebrate co-op month with the rest of the movement!
As we continue to see the growth of worker-owned businesses and a widespread understanding of the model, we renew our commitment to training and equipping leaders in the sector and being the “think and do” tank that helps the worker cooperative movement to grow strategically.
DAWI congratulates graduates of our 2015 Fellowship for Worker Cooperative Developers!

DAWI’s learning cohorts create strong communities of practice among peers and across generations of developers.
Here are the ten worker cooperative developers who completed DAWI’s year-long Fellowship:
