Adriane is a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Southern California’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, where her research interests focus on economic outcomes for workers in democratic workplaces, specifically employee-owned businesses. As a fellow with the Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing, she had studied mental health outcomes for formerly incarcerated individuals working in organizations that offered employee stock option plans. Her interest in platform worker cooperatives developed after participating in the Alternative Data Futures Research Sprint at The Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University. She worked on a project investigating the value of creating certification standards for digital platforms. Adriane’s planned ICDE research report will focus on platform cooperatives as a social good that can create space for marginalized workers in the digital economy.
