To guide our shift from MSI research into exploring alternatives to the dominant corporate form, MSI Integrity is enlisting members to its Advisory Circle on a rolling basis.
The Circle is intended to have a holistic and diverse mix of experience and knowledge of people who have worked in areas or fields of direct relevance to our new work, as well as who reflect diversity across gender, race, age, ethnicity, class, sexuality, ability and other social differences. We are specifically creating a Circle that includes experience directly working with unions or worker organizing, the solidarity economy, alternative business structures, challenging corporate power, and dismantling the local and national policies and practices that support corporate dominance (or promote the opposite!). We believe it is important our Circle includes those with lived experience, such as workers and community members, as well as technical expertise, such as researchers, professionals or advocates.
Our Circle includes thus far:
- Tori Kuper, Network Organizer at the New Economy Coalition
- David Morris, co-founder of the Institute for Local Self Reliance
- Jessica Gordon Nembhard, Professor of Community Justice and Social Economic Development at CUNY
