Co-founder at Sociocracy for all

Ted J. Rau is a trainer and coach for sociocracy. He is the co-founder of Sociocracy For All, a nonprofit that makes decentralized, consent-based governance accessible to everyone. He and his five children live in a co-housing community in Massachusetts with 80 neighbors. Ted identifies as transgender; he was born and raised in Germany with a background in linguistics. Ted loves systems that help us be our better selves and that lead us closer to a world that works for everyone. The early forming of a new group is a crucial moment. With intentional processes, we can establish an inclusive group culture early on to grow and flourish without governance troubles getting in the way – keeping our eyes on our shared purpose.
