Social Coop meta, recruitment Show more
A thought on recruiting people to Social.Coop: we should be conscious of how our recruiting affects the composition of the membership. Speaking for myself, I just invited two cis/het white males so I need to add folks from outside that demographic.
#coopfact of the day!
This is a great lesson for the #GreenNewDeal.
Also recommend warmly everyone to read @ntnsndr s brilliant article, it's where I found about this fact:
Follow me if you want a daily dose of #coop knowledge!
Best books on #consensus?
Going through the messy process of trying to come up with company values at the start up org where I currently work. Anyone have good resources on #workplaceculture and #workplacevalues? Of course I'm coming in strong with the #coop #nonhierarchical #liberatory vibes and I'd love to convert my team ;)
We're trying something new at GEO. We call them Get-Togethers. 1/19/19, Jessica Gordon-Nembhard will talk about her current research, her work with incarcerated and returning-citizen #WorkerCoops, and progress on the graphic novel adaptation of her book "Collective Courage."
This event is FREE FOR GEO DONORS and $5-10 for everyone else. We'll post the video a couple of weeks after, but if you want to get in on this in-person, we've got limited spots available:
Anyone know of some fun coop #gifs?
The articles combined have an average of 350 000 visitors a month, so hopefully this will help raise awareness.
Any other Wikipedians or who would like to become one?
Could be a nice community activity for #socialcoop, perhaps something to consider with the Reading Group at some point?
The organization I work for is doing an all staff retreat in #DC. Anyone know of good catering coops there? Or coffee coops? Or restaurants for events? I'm looking to coop-ify the whole week
Just got to the #platformcooperativism section in Anand Giridharadas’s Winners Take All. I love when books that have gained a lot of mainstream attention talk about coops!!!

economic democracy makes me smile
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
