Join our team
At Project Equity, we re-envision community economic development to shift control locally and build economic resiliency in low-income communities. We envision a future where business decisions are made through a lens of what is good for workers and communities, leading to businesses that are more successful, communities that are more resilient, and workers who have stable jobs and economic security. Our mission is to foster economic resiliency with low-income communities by demonstrating and replicating strategies that increase worker ownership. Project Equity’s current programs are:
- BUSINESS OUTREACH AND EDUCATION: we raise awareness raising and educate business owners and community leaders through professional marketing and PR strategies and by partnering with municipal economic development staff, small businesses networks, and professional service providers such as CPAs, M&A advisors, and exit planners.
- BUSINESS TRANSITION SERVICES: we support businesses converting to employee ownership through our Business Transition Program. We deliver a custom service package that includes hands on education as well as technical assistance by Project Equity and our professional partners (legal, finance, CPA), consult on the transaction, connect to financing, design the employee ownership structure and governance, and ensure that the new employee-owners have the information, skills and support they need to be successful.
- REGIONAL REPLICATION: we are creating repeatable processes for our Business Outreach and Transition Programs and replicating them with regional partners around the country.
HOW TO APPLY FOR POSITIONS: Please submit a resume, cover letter and writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your cover letter, please explain what motivates you to work with Project Equity, and how your experience, skills and commitment will advance our work to create a more equitable economy.
