dc.description.abstractThis project focuses on Equal Exchange's Education Committee goal to increase the education and training opportunities for remote staff and regional offices around the United States. Since Equal Exchange is a worker cooperative, education among membership is a very important task in its workplace principles. This report explains the objectives and inputs used to implement educational and training programs so that they better reach employees outside of the main office in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Though not all results are reported here because of delayed implementation and constrained budgets, this report will give anyone in the cooperative movement a good idea of what it means to have a strong educational program. It will also offer a variety of ways to train and educate potential worker-owners, which leads to better decisions made within the company. Having a higher participation rate empowers employees and encourages them to work longer for the company. In worker cooperatives, having employees stay longer means increased equity both for the company and for each employee. (Author abstract)en_US
