Examples of Successful Community Wealth Building

This event opens C2BE's Community Based Enterprise Week, and brings together key participants from three successful CBE examples, each of which can serve as a model for Detroit.

Featured Speakers include:
Mikel Lezamiz, Cooperative Dissemination Director, Mondragon Cooperative Corporation, Spain, will describe how an impoverished community, devastated by the Spanish Civil War, has, over 50 years, developed 120 related cooperative businesses in manufacturing (including auto supply), service, banking, insurance, and retail; employing more than 100,000; with annual sales of over 16 billion euro; an engineering university and three research and development institutions.

Prof. John Logue, Director, Ohio Employee Ownership Center (OEOC) at Kent State University will describe the OEOC’s role in saving and creating thousands jobs in Ohio; including its key role in organizing, education and technical assistance for the Ohio Employee Owned Network of 93 companies. Many of the Network companies are unionized. Union leaders have led employee buyouts and creation of worker co-ops. Prof. Logue will explain how OEOC used ideas from Mondragon and from a network of thousands of cooperatives (many unionized) in Northern Italy as a foundation for OEOC’s work and organizing the Network. OEOC is  involved in creating a group of inner city worker co-operatives to become suppliers to Cleveland’s major hospitals and universities.

Steve Mullan, CEO and Mary Landry, Board Chair, Maryland Brush Company, will explain how a 100% employee-owned, unionized company in inner-city Baltimore has moved from old to new economy products.

Deb Olson, Executive Director of C2BE, will lead a discussion on how can we apply these lessons in Detroit.

A light lunch will be served; admission is free, but we would appreciate donations towards the cost.
