About us

The Democracy at Work Institute expands the promise of cooperative business ownership to reach those communities most directly affected by social and economic inequality. It ensures that further growth in the worker cooperative movement is both rooted in worker cooperatives themselves and reaches out to new communities of worker-owners, particularly low-income people, people of color and recent immigrants.Specifically, it:

  • Facilitates education and skill-sharing among existing cooperatives
  • Provides practical support in the form of research, training, tools, and standards
  • Builds relationships among the various institutions supporting, developing and financing worker cooperatives
  • Educates the public about the need for and benefits of democratic worker-ownership
