Symposia

Hosting symposia is an important ongoing initiative for us. We value bringing together diverse perspectives from within the co-operative and credit union sector to engage and inspire our students. The ideas gathered at our symposia allow us to explore solutions to tough questions and gain valuable insights for our research and curriculum. Ultimately, these ideas improve co-operative governance and broaden everyone's perspective as we learn from experts across the co-operative movement.
