Can Employee Share Ownership Improve Racial and Gender Wealth Equity?
Even before the pandemic, in an allegedly strong economy, workers at the bottom end of the opportunity scale were struggling to support themselves and their families. No single metric is more striking in this respect than the divisions in wealth between men and women, and between white households and households of color. The pandemic has exacerbated and heightened awareness of these inequities, and there is a mounting sense of urgency to surface practical solutions. Broadening opportunities to participate in the ownership of business assets can help address this wealth divide and offer working people the opportunity to meaningfully participate in the success of our economy. Join us for our next Opportunity in America event, featuring Julie Bertani-Kiser (Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Recology), Janet Boguslaw (Senior Scientist, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University; Fellow, Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing, Rutgers University), Susan Hoop (Customer Service Representative and Employee Owner, Recology), Todd Leverette (Legacy Business Program Manager, Democracy at Work Institute), and moderator Kimberly Adams (Correspondent, Marketplace) with opening remarks from Natalie Abatemarco (Managing Director, U.S. Business Partnerships and Inclusive Finance, Citi Community Investing and Development).
