SEED Fellowship Webinars

The Shared Equity in Economic Development (SEED) Fellowship is a partnership between the National League of Cities and the Democracy at Work Institute that convenes and equips city leaders with tools, resources, and expertise to build equitable economies using democratic business ownership through a year-long program of leadership development, peer-to-peer learning, and strategy design support.

Income and wealth inequality, exploitative working conditions and displacement are critical issues faced by communities across the country. These challenges require strategies that create both stable employment and access to opportunities for building assets.

In 2018-2019, our inaugural cohort of city and community leaders from Atlanta, Durham, Miami, and Philadelphia focused on developing initiatives to preserve their legacy small businesses through conversions to employee ownership.

This webinar series provided our Fellows and their partnered technical assistance and capital providers a foundation in employee ownership conversions and strategies for scale.
