The purpose of the annual Beyster Symposium is to study broad-based forms of financial participation in capital ownership and capital income, such as broad-based employee stock ownership, equity compensation, profit sharing, gain sharing, and worker cooperatives in the corporation and the society of the United States from an interdisciplinary perspective. The workshop provides an opportunity for senior and emerging scholars, legal and policy experts to present research in progress and receive mutual mentoring and feedback.

The workshop convenes the more than 120 fellows of the Fellowship Program of the School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR) at Rutgers University, including several graduate and undergraduate research associates, assistants and fellows. The fellows are studying these issues at more than 30 universities, colleges, and research centers nationwide and in more than 30 states.
