How Class Continues to Impact Our New Economy Initiatives

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Participants in the New Economy movement have inherited the vestiges of class-based psychological trauma. We will investigate how class patterns manifest in interpersonal interactions in new economy initiatives. Following a short case study of 3 initiatives: the Bike Hub, Barrio Alegria, and local Farmer's Market, session participants will explore their individual class backgrounds and how this relates to their work. Participants will walk away with a more robust understanding of how class patterns show up in their organizations/initiatives.
