#MakingWaves: We Must Build Legislative Power

#MakingWaves: We Must Build Legislative Power | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
In 2014, with two partners, I launched BreadHive Worker Cooperative. Though BreadHive went on to experience a lot of success, we hit many obstacles to getting off the ground. Barriers around capital, technical assistance and policy meant that choosing to become a worker cooperative put us on a harder, slower, and more precarious startup journey than traditional businesses faced.

For the last four years, I have been working with NEC member Cooperation Buffalo, and an incredible team of cooperators and legislators across the New York State, to transform policy from a barrier into an accelerator for cooperative growth.

The first time we pushed for policy, we were told we were small, insignificant, and not worth the time or effort. The second time, they tried to stall us. The third time, we won – creating a statewide advisory panel on employee-owned enterprises that will make recommendations on how to best support and expand worker ownership in New York State.

While in Helsinki I was interviewed on a number of questions that had been provided by civil servants, to inform part of a public sector training program. These interviews were put together as a five-part video and are available free online at eLearning Finland [eOppiva].

1. Civil servants using networks
2. Seek > Sense > Share model
3. Differences in working and learning in networks
4. Efficient networking
5. Civil servants in external networks

Several graphics are included in the presentation and I have put these together as a PDF — PKM for Civil Servants.

Network era fluency could be described as individuals and communities understanding and being part of global networks that influence various aspects of our lives. For individuals, the core skill is critical thinking, or questioning all assumptions, including one’s own. People can learn though their various communities and develop social literacy. Information literacy is improved by connecting to a diversity of networks.
