Collaborative Story Craft as a Tool for Inclusive Workplace Practices

Tricia Cleland Silva, Paulo de Tarso Fonseca Silva

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


How can storytelling help create more inclusive workplaces and bring about consent with things as they really are? This chapter presents our intervention tool, Collaborative Story Craft (CSC), as a way to involve more members in the collective story at the workplace. From our positions as researchers and practitioners, we give an account of the tool’s theoretical framework, specifically schools of sensemaking and social worlds, to describe and connect our method to practice. In this chapter, we also introduce a fictional story to highlight the sensemaking process of using CSC as a meaningful way to include more voices into the collective story.
