Scripting Diversity: Harnessing Drama for Inclusive Working

At STEPS Drama, we’ve harnessed the transformative power of drama through our Steps to Change programme to foster inclusive working environments. This innovative approach comprises four key stages: See It, Own It, Change It, and Live It.

  • See It: The initial step is about opening people’s eyes to their current behaviours and the need for change. We employ drama as a potent tool to accomplish this. Through actor facilitators or bespoke videos, we hold up a reflective mirror to delegates, allowing them to vividly recognise the existing workplace culture and their role within it. Drama’s immediate impact is unmatched, helping individuals see the urgency of change.
  • Own It: For lasting change, individuals must believe in its value and necessity. The Own It stage guides participants towards this belief by offering ample opportunities to explore perceived barriers and providing the necessary time for reflection. Various techniques, including behaviour profiling and storytelling, are employed to reinforce this belief.
  • Change It: Here, we equip individuals with the skills and behaviours needed for the new inclusive workplace culture. Our toolkit includes bespoke role-play, coaching, high-impact learning activities, video and digital media, and simulations. We work closely with our clients to tailor the right combination of methods that align with their specific goals and operational constraints.
  • Live It: This final stage ensures that the change is not just a temporary shift but becomes an integral part of the workplace culture. We support organisations and individuals in sustaining the momentum of change, making it “the way we do things round here.” We focus on leadership’s role in making this transformation a reality, devising implementation plans, and ensuring lasting behaviour change rather than short-lived initiatives.

Who Can Benefit from Drama-Led Inclusive Working Workshops?

Drama-led inclusive working workshops offer substantial benefits to a wide spectrum of individuals and organisations. These dynamic and interactive sessions are not limited by industry or sector, making them universally applicable.

  • Diverse Workforces: Organisations with diverse workforces, including those from various cultural backgrounds, age groups, and experiences, can particularly benefit. Drama-based techniques break down communication barriers, foster empathy, and help bridge cultural gaps.
  • Teams and Departments: Drama-led workshops are highly effective for teams and departments seeking to enhance collaboration and communication. They facilitate teamwork by encouraging participants to step into each other’s shoes and gain a deeper understanding of different perspectives.

Benefits of Participating in This Drama-Led Inclusive Working Workshops

Drama-led inclusive working workshops offer a multitude of benefits that extend far beyond traditional training methods. These dynamic sessions use theatrical techniques to create engaging and immersive learning experiences, resulting in several advantages:

These workshops improve verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Participants learn to express themselves more effectively, actively listen, and understand the importance of body language and tone in communication.

By stepping into different roles and perspectives during role-play and improvisation, participants develop a deeper sense of empathy. They gain a better understanding of diverse viewpoints, fostering inclusivity and tolerance.

Next, drama-led workshops provide a safe space for exploring and resolving conflicts. Participants learn to address disagreements constructively, reducing workplace tension and promoting harmony.

Encouraging creative thinking is a hallmark of drama-based learning. Participants are inspired to think outside the box, fostering innovation and fresh approaches to problem-solving.

Also, these workshops emphasise teamwork and collaboration, promoting a sense of unity among participants. Team members become more supportive, cooperative, and open to one another’s ideas. Drama activities boost self-esteem and self-confidence. Participants become more comfortable speaking in public and handling challenging situations with poise.

Drama-led workshops are particularly effective in promoting cultural sensitivity and diversity. They help break down stereotypes and encourage participants to embrace and celebrate differences.

Lastly, the skills learned in drama workshops are immediately applicable to real-life scenarios, enhancing participants’ ability to navigate the complexities of the workplace with ease.
