How Does Theatre-Based Unconscious Bias Training Work
At Steps, we firmly believe that theatre-based training is an effective way to raise awareness and drive positive behavioural change in the workplace. Our creative learning techniques and interactive dramas provide a safe and supportive space for employees to discuss sensitive topics, such as unconscious bias, and challenge their assumptions and beliefs. But how exactly does this approach work?
To begin, we work closely with our clients to customise our training programs to their unique needs and objectives. This may involve identifying the types of biases most prevalent in their workplace or industry and developing scenarios relevant to their employees.
Our drama-based training typically involves a group of talented actors who enact a scenario that depicts a workplace situation where unconscious bias is at play. The scenario is engaging and relatable and may feature characters from a range of backgrounds and cultures. After the performance, the actors engage with the audience in a facilitated discussion about the scenario and the depicted unconscious biases.
Through this process, participants are encouraged to reflect on their own biases and assumptions and explore ways to challenge and overcome them. Our training also includes practical tools and strategies that can be implemented in the workplace to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We offer a variety of training formats, including roleplay, workshops, coaching, high-impact learning exercises, video and digital media, well-crafted experiences, and simulations, to ensure that our training programs are accessible and effective for clients worldwide.
Our theatre-based unconscious bias training has been shown to be highly effective in promoting awareness and driving behavioural change in the workplace. By creating a supportive and engaging environment for employees to explore unconscious bias, we can help create a more inclusive and respectful workplace culture that benefits everyone.
