Interview with Emily Kawano – US Solidarity Economy Network
Live interview with Emily Kawano, from United States Solidarity Economy Network
Emily Kawano is the Coordinator of the United States Solidarity Economy Network, as well as the Co-Director of the Wellspring Cooperative Corporation. Through her work with Wellspring, she is striving to create an engine for new, community-based job creation that will provide job training and entry-level jobs to unemployed and underemployed residents through worker-owned cooperatives. An economist by training, she taught economics at Smiths College and served as the Director of the Center for Popular Economics from 2004 to 2013.
We will be asking Emily about solidarity economy, her work with cooperatives and the instrumental role they have to play in a new changed economy.
