We the Owners: Employees Expanding the American Dream Official Trailer  - CLEO Skip to main content


Integrating art, business and education, this documentary film captures inspiring stories of employees and founders from three companies, each structured with distinct forms of broad-based employee ownership, who share an insider’s view of shared wealth and responsibility, high involvement culture, and their approaches and challenges in creating opportunity and prosperity through ownership.

Via their unwavering commitment to creating a thriving community of individuals who are passionate about what they do and how they do it, DPR Construction, Namasté Solar and New Belgium Brewing Company are doing just that. Listen as they share their experiences and challenges with motivating and engaging employees, being entrepreneurial and innovative, furthering their dedication to corporate and social responsibility, and leading expansion of decentralized organizations in local and global markets.

As the stories in the film show, employee ownership comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. But the core message from all of these companies rings out loud and clear: the power of the voice, vote and shared ownership of employees cannot, and should not, be taken for granted.
