Blog

A blog series on GWI’s transition to a worker self-directed nonprofit, moving from a traditional hierarchical structure to shared leadership.

A blog series on what Just Transition looks like in action, refracted through the living experience of people in our community.

A roundup of GWI news, including upcoming workshops, Network events, community calls to action, and links to resources.

A collection of posts and reflections on Rooted Resources – a festival and series that shines a light on localizing economic power to nurture solidarity, awareness, and action.

Articles and personal reflections from the GWI team as they navigate their lives and their shared work.

Welcome to our blog!

We invite you to dive into posts from GWI workers as well as invited contributors from our Network. We have a few blog series to offer you: in the Illumination series, you can learn about Just Transition-aligned initiatives and explore reflections from members of our community; or join us as we share the twists and turns of our journey from a traditional nonprofit to one in which we all share governance in Sharing Power; or catch up with our more personal reflections in Notes from the Field.
