The Foundation for Enterprise Development has released the trailer for their new film on employee ownership. Titled “We The Owners: Employees Expanding the American Dream” the film follows three differently structured employee-owned companies as they create a stakeholder economy based on ‘prosperity through ownership’. And, in a publishing coup, the OEOC can preview a few stills from the film:
The purpose of the film is more than entertainment. In conversations with your humble scribe, Executive Producer Mary Ann Beyster expressed the additional goal that the film be a tool for broadening the discussion and teaching of the concept of employee ownership in the nation’s universities and MBA programs (a goal that we at the OEOC certainly applaud and support).
Scheduled for release in Summer 2012, you can view the trailer at the site linked above or on YouTube.
The Foundation for Enterprise Development was founded in 1986 by Dr. J. Robert Beyster. The Foundation’s mission is to promote broad-based employee ownership and entrepreneurism.
