Worker power, distribution of power, ethical finance, people over profits. These all sound great, but what do they actually look like in practice?
Around the country, bank workers are organizing to hold financial institutions accountable to better serving their workforce, customers, and the public good. At the same time, public pressure movements are mounting from people who need their banks and financial services to reflect their values — and put people at the heart of business. From bank tellers documenting racist management interactions to the fight to end fossil fuel financing, financial institutions can no longer talk without walking the walk.
What does worker power in the context of financial institutions and banks look like? How can we, as financial practitioners, advance worker power in our own workplaces? What are the intersections of worker power and racial equity?
This session is open to everyone, and especially to those working in financial institutions with a commitment to advance worker dignity and power within their workplaces. Join us!
