Proceedings from Employee Ownership Symposium Now Available

Last July, Aspen participated in the inaugural Beyster Fellowship Symposium, sponsored by The Foundation for Enterprise Development.  The Symposium served as an opportunity for researchers from numerous institutions to present and discuss inter-disciplinary studies addressing broad-based employee ownership.  The proceedings for the symposium, titled Shared Capitalism and Employee Ownership: The Scholarly Agenda, are now available on the Foundation's Web site and we encourage you to take a look--it's a good source of background on the history and current research trends on employee ownership as a field of study.

The Aspen Institute's Center for Business Education encourages future business leaders to innovate at the intersection of corporate profits and social impacts.  Our goal is bold and long-term: to radically re-orient the MBA degree to embrace the principles of corporate citizenship and sustainability.
