Translations:Access, Inclusion and Equity in the NVC Network - v2/10/en
For example, some people in our network believe NVC equalizes power dynamics and evens out the playing field. This belief does not match our experience. We have noticed that socio-economic power and the influence of the cultural norms of the dominant group create an uneven playing field. Lack of awareness of this is not neutral or benign. People from the dominant group are not likely to notice that some people from non-dominant groups might not speak up because of a need for security, acceptance, belonging, dignity, and/or because of the enormous burden that living under current conditions puts on them. This is one way silencing can happen without intention.
