Our Mission

The Employee Ownership Expansion Network is a national nonprofit focused on significantly expanding employee ownership  across the United States by establishing and supporting a network of independent nonprofit State Centers for Employee Ownership. We see employee ownership as a critical tool in reducing poverty, increasing community wealth, and creating a more vibrant, participatory economy.
