Our Mission

Generating $20 billion for workers by 2030.

By 2030, Ownership Works aims to generate at least $20 billion of wealth for workers and create hundreds of thousands of new employee-owners.

To achieve this goal, we are fueling a movement and providing hands-on guidance to help businesses implement broad-based employee ownership programs that provide every employee with the opportunity to become an owner who shares in the value they help create.
