Innovative organizations are emerging everywhere in the new economy - worker cooperatives, sharing economy enterprises, renewable energy cooperatives, time banks, land trusts, and much more. But many organizations plow forward and begin operations without thinking carefully about decision-making processes, composition and selection of governing bodies, systems for transparency, and other key considerations.
Janelle Orsi will begin the conversation by highlighting key challenges and promising governance models, drawing upon cooperative structures, innovative corporate governance structures, unique nonprofit models, holacratic governance structures, and principles for the management of common pool resources. Following this, we will engage with attendees to learn about their experiences with and thoughts about governance in various organizational settings. One goal for this session is to narrow in on some common goals and principles for organizational governance in a cooperative economy.
