Hi Trebor and Michael,

Please see below for our program description.

Co-Design Potluck: Designing Tech Together

At a potluck, we all bring something to the table and benefit from others’ contributions. This workshop provides an opportunity for the cooperative community to collectively identify common needs for digital tools and processes that:

- Support the daily operations of cooperatives
- Provide guidance in starting platform co-ops
- Foster the growth of cooperative businesses

Participants will identify shared needs and collaboratively develop designs for labour platform tools that support the needs of the cooperative ecosystem. 

The outcome of this workshop will include requirements, design ideas, and a plan for next steps, and will provide an opportunity to realise our shared network of resources and how they might best be applied to achieve our common goals. 

Join members of the Inclusive Design Research Centre and our partner co-ops on the Platform Cooperative Development Kit project to contribute your perspectives. 

We are seeking participants who are co-op members or those with resources and skills to contribute. Be prepared to discuss the gaps in your organization’s digital toolkit and share the ingredients that make these tools work. We hope this event will connect community members with resources to carry this work forward. We can’t wait to see what you bring to the table!
