Mutual Aid Networks: Serious Co-op Fun
How do we operationalize a real collaborative economy, especially the social, legal and economic frameworks that can really support us and our projects? We're finding answers!

We will demonstrate how our Mutual Aid Networks (MANs www.mutualaidnetwork.org) can redesign work and compensation to build a new economy.

Methodology: we will present a brief overview of the MANs, originating from Madison, Wisconsin, then lead participants through a work/life design and robust budgeting activity so they can see how this model can directly apply to their own lives and projects. Participants will share their experience verbally and will use new paper and/or online tools.

We will develop several new examples of how MAN budgeting and work/life design tools can provide security for a person or project. We will refine these tools through practice and feedback. We will document the session to share online for future learning.

Nilofer Merchant: "Be Warned: Copy Silicon Valley and You Will Surely Fail"

About 20 months ago, Nilofer arrived in Paris from Silicon Valley. While she's been here, she's been researching how new and novel ideas dent the world for an upcoming book (Onlyness, Penguin/2017). The European context combined with the discovery writing process has made her realize how much the truth doesn't match the myths and narratives of Silicon Valley: in fact, they are the opposite.

Challenging our Traditional Beliefs about Business and Work
The words of business adn work is at a pivotal moment of change: we finally uderstand that post-industrial work IS interaction. The relational view is a new conceptualization of work, and is opening up new opportunities: it is time to change the focus from creating jobs to creating customers — in new, innovative and interactive ways.

To quote Max Planck: “If you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change.”

We need to challenge our beliefs in work and business.

HyperGender

Gender & creative communities: the end of hierarchy?

The paradigm shift we have been witnessing in the economy is also happening regarding gender balance. Gender categories as hierarchical and differentiating are exploding, and it impacts many areas. 

In the work environment, gender should play a little role. But it's still not the case: there are still general discrimination against women or queer, wage inequality, etc., except in the innovative ecosystems, collaborative economy, social business, creative networks, etc.
 
Is it allowed because the values that are promoted in those organizations (autonomy, trust) are more "feminine" and inclusive?

We will also explore how this attention paid to singularity and holistic approach to the person in these new ecosystems) also impacts other areas (sexual-identity fluidity, neo-relationships, sexuality, etc.). 



 

We are going to explore these questions: 

1) describing this shift in comparison to the traditional work and academic world 

2) analyzing if that shift is related to generation change and / or way of working ?

3) If it's allowed because the values that are now promoted in those organizations (autonomy, trust) are more "feminine" / inclusive?

4) And how this attention paid to singularity AND holistic approach to the person (at work) also impacts other areas (gender identities, relationships, sexuality etc.) as an opening conclusion part.
