Hello Friend of the Ohio Employee Ownership Center (OEOC),
The last 18 months have presented numerous challenges to communities, businesses, and individuals across the country. We at the Ohio Employee Ownership Center had our fair share of challenges too. But, like so many of the employee-owned companies we serve, we adapted and pushed forward, developing a slate of virtual programs (including 2 virtual conferences) while easing back into in-person sessions in the latter half of 2021. Here are a few highlights:
Heading into 2022, we pledge to continue providing the services, and the training and education programming outlined above, and that makes the OEOC the most active state employee ownership center in the country. And, we are placing a special focus on building the E-O sector in Ohio with the following initiatives:
As you can see, we have big plans, and we are looking forward to making them real. We can use your help. If you are interested in helping us advocate for employee ownership, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll engage in the fight together. If you would like to financially support the OEOC’s work, you can make a tax-deductible donation to the OEOC using the button below.
We hope that you and yours have a hopeful and happy holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you in 2022!
