Lunch and Learn – Plural ownership

arrow down

In recent years, local governments have increasingly considered policies to support plural and local ownership to improve local economic performance and achieve other policy objectives. Plural ownership policies aim to support businesses with alternative legal and organisational structures – such as cooperatives, social enterprises, and municipal enterprises. Local ownership policies aim to support locally-owned businesses.

Can plural or local ownership lead to increased local employment, wages or productivity? What are the potential downsides?

Join us for a brief session sharing findings from our recent review of the evidence on the local economic impacts of plural ownership and a discussion of how to think through the possible benefits.

Victoria Sutherland, Head of Evidence at What Works Growth will present our new evidence briefing, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

This is the second of four ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions taking place across the Spring – feel free to attend them all, or pick and choose; each is a standalone session on one topic.
