About the Private Equity Stakeholder Project:

The private equity industry is massive, hugely influential, and playing a role in more and more aspects of life in the US and around the world. The industry manages over $11 trillion in assets and owns companies that employ more than 11.7 million American workers, plus millions more around the world.

While the world and the global economy continue to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic, private equity firms been buying companies at a record pace. As private equity firms and deals have grown, they have come to impact growing numbers of workers.

Private equity firms have often taken a low road approach and sought to reduce wages, benefits, and staffing at firms they acquire – with devastating consequences for workers, their families and their entire communities.

The mission of the Private Equity Stakeholder Project is to identify, engage, and connect stakeholders affected by private equity with the goal of engaging investors and empowering communities, working families, and others impacted by private equity investments.
