A Professional Peer Network for Democratic Businesses

Formerly the Democracy at Work Network (DAWN), The USFWC Co-op Clinic has a network of peer advisors, all with strong social and professional ties, who provide technical assistance services to worker cooperatives.

Worker cooperatives, like all businesses, require professional services to support the creation and operations of their business. Due to the specialized nature of worker ownership, they also require specialized assistance in setting up financial, governance, operations, and decision-making structures, as well as training in democratic management.

We aim to meet the demand for technical assistance and development advice with high-quality services, and increase worker cooperative technical assistance capacity from inside the movement.
