Abstract

This project aims to test the utility of digital storytelling as a) an intervention for mediating difficult conversations about positive cultural and behavioural change, b) a method of data collection, and c) as an innovative way of sharing evidence and expertise. The focus of the project is the discussion of 'Critical Whiteness' within organisational development. Previous research by the project leaders concluded that the absence of Critical Whiteness discussions may be creating a barrier to addressing the Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) attainment gap through curriculum change. We believe that approaches to address implicit bias often focus on individual rather than organisational responsibility for change. Thus, Critical Whiteness is an important and often overlooked area of positive cultural and behavioural change within organisations. This development project will collect and analyse data from one Higher Education Provider and develop a digital Practice Guide to support the development of further work across the sector.
