Experiences in Employee Ownership: Chroma Technology

About the Project


“Experiences in Employee Ownership” is a project Sam developed while performing historical research at and for Chroma Technology Corp. in the Fall of 2016. While Chroma was the primary participant organization, several others were included in the project throughout the Northeast. One of the goals of the project is to highlight the world of employee ownership in ways that realistically shade it with both the bad and the good, the easy and the difficult, and the entirely possible ways that people are currently reshaping our economy.

  • Hi Sam,

    I found these interviews really interesting. I would like to use some quotes for them in a Piece about Chroma for Fifty by fifty. May I have your permission to quote this content, and if so, how would you like to be credited?
