On March 18, Forefront Fellows hosted a discussion on creative strategies to support business conversions to employee ownership. 

Employee ownership offers a more equitable structure for business ownership by fostering collective decision-making and shared wealth. At this workshop, an expert panel of jurors with diverse expertise and approaches to employee ownership reviewed and critiqued a set of proposed interventions to support cooperative conversions. Together, jurors and cohort members explored regulatory, human, and financial hurdles these interventions face and advised on feasibility and potential for impact.
