NVC and Privilege: A Global Perspective

Jeyanthy Siva, ​ International NVC Facilitator
Sunday, June 11th • 9:00-10:30am Pacific (California) Time

How does privilege show up when people whose cultures hold differing levels of power interact with each other — for example, when refugees or immigrants find themselves living amidst strangers in a new and unfamiliar country?
