The Conference of the Canadian Worker Co-op Federation is happening in Vancouver from November 2nd-5th. SSG is a proud worker cooperative. We are pleased to attend the conference and help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the CWCF & CoopZone. This conference will be a great opportunity for participants to meet, share ideas, and build networks in the worker cooperative sector.
The Co-operators CEO, Kathy Bardswick, will be the keynote speaker and the conference will cover several practical training topics such as:
- Managing the democratic process in a worker co-operative;
- Financing worker co-ops; and,
- Strengthening your Co-op’s value proposition.
Find more details on it here, and be sure to touch base with us if you plan to attend!
Sustainability Reporting for Co-operatives: A Guidebook, prepared by SSG for the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA), explores the different types of reporting frameworks used by co-ops globally, the process of developing a chosen framework and how a co-op can then communicate results to members and interested stakeholders.
The Guidebook also provides guidance on how co-operatives can track their contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
