Advancing Equity through Employee Ownership Models

Host Organization: Philanthropy New York and Asset Funders Network


Successful employee ownership models are being explored across the country as ways to build and share wealth in low income communities and to address economic inequality. These models of employee ownership offer promising opportunities to build wealth and shared equity. Employee ownership is, however, not “one size fits all;” Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs), cooperatives, conversion of existing business to employee ownership and, start-ups, are all models that offer regional promise.

Please join The New York and Regional Asset Funders Network and Philanthropy New York and a panel of muncipal and non-profit leaders as we we explore Employee Ownership Models. This program is intended for philanthropic leaders who want to better understand the promise and challenge of employee ownership and community wealth building as well as the levers for philanthropy.


  • Different models of employee ownership, learning, and insights to inform wealth building at the community level
  • What levers philanthropy can invest in to change financial wellbeing at the community level
  • How employee ownerships models connect to a racial equity agenda
  • Next steps in shifting workers from employer cost to employee owner
