NVCANZ Trust Board
Jocelyn, a co-founder and original chairperson of the Board, is delighted to return as chair in June 2020. She is excited by the potential that is opening to us at this time of global disruption for the co-creation of a more nonviolent world for all.
She resonates with Marshall Rosenberg’s vision of NVC as a powerful means for systemic change, rather than just another ‘tool’ to help people tolerate the status quo. It is her hope that serving on the ANZNVC Board will contribute to leveraging the power of NVC to impact systemic social change.
She lives in the Far North, where with an enthusiastic “Communication for Life” team, she aims to make NVC accessible for all who want it.
