purpose, power, and pay
What are common challenges of organizations aiming to distribute power around budgeting and money? What questions does one need to ask when creating a budgeting system? What practices are out there already for those who want to take an alternative approach to money and finances? In this session, Francesca Pick will share from 10 years of experience and experimentation with transparent and participatory budgeting and money practices within various global networks and communities, as well as her self-organized collective Greaterthan. She’ll share key insights form this work and 5 important design questions for helping you build your organizational budgeting system.
