As an Assessor on the Trainer Candidate Community Path team of the Center for Nonviolent Communication’s (CVNC) Educational Services group, I collaborate with other experienced assessors as I work to support people from the Global Majority* who wish to develop the experience and integration of NVC consciousness that will enable them to bring the power of NVC to the communities they serve.
I bring decades of service experience to my work interrupting explicitly and implicitly oppressive attitudes and cultural norms within individuals, communities, and organizations. Rooted in my experience as an Afro-Caribbean immigrant to the United States, my passion for cultivating resilience and equity comes from seeing how differently different communities were resourced. The diversity of perspectives and experience I hold, along with a commitment to compassion and fierce authenticity, generates profound insights for transformative change grounded in the consciousness of nonviolence. You can learn more about me on my website.
I currently accept candidates in cohorts who will work and learn together throughout the assessment journey. Our current cohort is full and we're unlikely to have openings in the near future. Other assessors on the team to which I belong, The Trainer Candidate Community Path, may have openings. I am currently working only with candidates who identify as being of the Global Majority* / BIPOC as part of my passion for helping create the conditions for folks from those communities to integrate, learn, and share NVC in ways that will lead to a world where everyone's needs truly matter and are held equitably.
* “Global Majority is a collective term that first and foremost speaks to and encourages those so-called to think of themselves as belonging to the global majority. It refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, dual-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and or have been racialised as ‘ethnic minorities’. Globally, these groups currently represent approximately eighty per cent (80%) of the world’s population making them the global majority now, and with current growth rates, notwithstanding Covid-19 and its emerging variants, the global majority is set to remain so for the foreseeable future.”
