    Webinar: Poverty Alleviation and Systems Change with Worker Cooperatives

    A time-tested approach to community economic development internationally, worker cooperative businesses are making inroads in the United States with regional initiatives in New York City, Madison, the Bay Area, and rural areas in the South. In this webinar, we aim to introduce worker-cooperative development as an innovative approach to poverty alleviation in U.S. communities through its focus on community wealth-building through worker-ownership and democratic decision-making. We'll explore case studies to explore how funders and citizens can learn from what has been done and take advantage of new opportunities to support real change.

    Are you hoping to advance your career and wondering how to market yourself? Has it been a while since you updated your resume? Do you wish you could know what hiring managers and recruiters are really looking for in your cover letters and resume? And what’s the deal with that one-page-resume rule? Is that legit?

    We hope to address these questions and more, help you dust off that resume, and get you on the path to the career you really want.

    Join EPIPDC for a workshop all about resumes and cover letters with recruiters from Careers in Nonprofits and Arabella Advisors.

    Our speakers:

    Elizabeth Stone: Elizabeth Stone has been successful in managing searches for CNP’s Permanent Division in Washington, DC since March of 2014. She places a large focus on recruiting and building relationships with Executive-level candidates in order to consistently present top talent to her clients. During her time at CNP, she’s grown from Recruiter to Manager of the DC Permanent Division, overseeing business development and recruitment efforts of her team. Elizabeth has helped her clients strengthen and develop their organizations by placing Executive and mid-level professionals in areas such as Fundraising/Development, Finance, Administrative, Marketing/Communications and Membership.

    Prior to joining CNP, Elizabeth worked as a Legal Assistant for the DC Bar, and has four years of legal recruiting experience for international law firms in the DC area.
