Gina Price is a certified trainer in sociocracy and a partner in the international Sociocracy Consulting Group and does training online and in Australia. Gina has been interested in the way people organize themselves since spending a year on an Antarctic Base in 1985. She experience includes working with groups in wilderness adventures, scientific expeditions, a Quaker community in Alaska, and an ecovillage development project.
Gina has been learning about and working with the Sociocratic method since 2004. In 2006 she initiated the formation of the Australasia Training Circle for Sociocracy which adopted the approach of “using the method to promote the method.” In 2007 this resulted in the group hosting the first training event in Australia after which Gina, under the mentorship of Tena Meadows O’Rear, consulted to the first Australian business to trial Sociocracy. In April 2008 Gina became a certified trainer in Sociocracy through Sociocratisch Centrum Nederland. In May 2008 she worked alongside Tena to present training to the Sydney Coastal EcoVillage and at the Business Leaders Forum on Sustainability, Parliament House, Canberra. In September 2008 she gave her first solo training in Fairbanks, Alaska.
In July 2009 Gina completed a Certificate of Coaching with Coach School, Bentley, and brings a coaching approach to her work with individuals and organizations. Since then she has conducted a number of seminars, introductory evenings and further trainings. In teaching and promoting Sociocracy, Gina continues to develop approaches that provide opportunities for individuals to learn by doing.
In addition to regularly teaching seminars and workshops, Gina has done training in sociocracy/dynamic governance with the Sydney Coastal EcoVillage (Narara Ecovillage) and at the Business Leaders Forum on Sustainable Development, Parliament House, Canberra.
