Stephen R. McDow II is a quintessential US national and international co-operator who embodies and lives by the 7 Co-operative Principles. Stephen looks to promote co-operative enterprises as a way of bringing solidarity amongst rural, urban and communities in-between to build a more inclusive economy.
Stephen has worked in collaboration, with a group of passionate and committed co-op advocates, to move the US co-operative movement forward at NCBA CLUSA and Keystone Development Center. His body of work has delivered programs, education, outreach, and advocacy to farmers, workers, and community leaders from diverse backgrounds.
