VillageCo is a Sociocracy!
Rather than give individuals power, we give power to circles of people which report, discuss, and make decisions about all aspects of our work. This is the principle of equivalence -that those affected by decisions should be involved in making and evolving them.
New to sociocracy? Check out this interactive introduction made by Sociocracy For All. You can also use this in-depth course to learn more.
If you are interested in joining a VillageCo circle, you may complete this Circle Membership Form.
If you'd like to have an introductory meeting first to discuss your interests and our needs, use this link to schedule a meeting with a recruiter.
