PACA @ CW CLI Workshops – Spring/Summer 2018

CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA) have partnered to offer PACA at CW: Cooperative Leadership Institute, a workshop series aimed at developing leadership capacity, skills, and collaboration.

Each month, workshops will cover a different topic and will share expertise, resources, and opportunities for cooperatives, not-for-profits, and for-profits throughout the Philadelphia region.  These workshops are offered as part of PACA’s Cooperative Leadership Institute (CLI), which houses programs aimed at developing leadership capacity, skill-sets, and pipelines in democratically organized businesses.

Workshops are open to all, co-op lovers, artistic and business entrepreneurs, emerging to established leaders, and beyond.

The cost for these workshops will be on a sliding scale basis, beginning at $10. We recognize that this kind of learning experience is often cost prohibitive for individuals, particularly leaders of color, low-income/low-asset individuals, and those from grassroots and small organizations.

Please find a cost that works for you. If you can afford to pay at the high end of the scale, please do! If you want to attend but can’t pay, please contact PACA at and we’ll figure out accommodations together.

Please RSVP in advance as sessions are capped at 20 and tend to fill quickly.

As fundamentally democratic organizations, co-op leadership can look and feel different from leadership in for-profit and even non-profit businesses.  With an emphasis on leadership rooted in servant and distributive leadership theories, PACA’s delivery of co-op leadership skills can serve employees, boards, and community organizers in a variety of sectors.

Over the years PACA has become expert at delivering highly participative and interactive workshops across leadership topics.  Group workshops are offered in cross-sectoral settings as well as for individual organizations.  If you are interested in having PACA offer leadership workshops at your business, please send an email to
