Alison Lingane, Shannon Rieger, Project Equity, Abril 2015

In her report for the Democracy Collaborative, Worker Cooperatives: Pathways to Scale, Project Equity’s Hilary Abell identified the conversion of successful existing businesses to democratic ownership as a key strategic path to a larger worker cooperative sector in the United States. Now, her colleague and Project Equity co-founder Alison Lingane, together with Shannon Rieger, provides a powerful collection of case studies aimed at helping owners, employees, and practitioners navigate the practical issues around worker cooperative conversions.
