Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

The Future of Cooperation

Guest speaker Dr. Caroline Shenaz Hossein (Associate Professor of Global Development and Political Science, University of Toronto) will speak on the future of cooperation; acknowledging black feminist economies in the Global South and beyond.

Black women in the African Diaspora engage in solidarity economies through a form of mutual aid called ROSCAs. These 'Banker Ladies' draw on ancient African traditions of Tontines and Susu that are informal and prioritize the collective.

Dr. Hossein will discuss how acknowledging the expertise of these Banker Ladies can help build an inclusive economy and revolutionize Canadian international development policy.
