Cooperatives, or co-ops, can be found across the globe in various sizes, forms and industries, but share a common set of principles that include self-help, democracy, equality and equity. Accion Women’s Business Center is hosting Cooperation Texas, an Austin-based non-profit committed to the creation of sustainable jobs through the development, support and promotion of worker-owned cooperatives, to share more about the work they do in supporting co-ops in the State of Texas. During this introductory workshop you will learn about the history of cooperatives, how they are used in different sectors, and how you can leverage the resources in your community with a co-op.
