Steps of Privilege (Beta) is an interactive VR experience that provides a safe space to explore the nuances of privilege and foster the discussion around diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI). Steps of Privilege is one of the world's first DEI-focused VR experiences and can be experienced both as part of individual education or integrated into an organization's DEI education initiatives.
In this fundamental, yet powerful, experience, participants listen to 20 statements read by a moderator and physically move forward or backward if the statement applies to them. For example, If you studied the culture of your ancestors in elementary school, take one step forward, and so on. This exercise provides participants with a unique opportunity to understand and reflect on the intricacies of their own privilege in a safe and judgment-free environment, while not exploiting the stories of others.
The Steps of Privilege experience accelerates the timeline for an individual to reach an intercultural mindset, recognize where they fall in the social construct, and empowers participants to work for social justice.
"Very thought provoking."
"I love the potential this type of experience has in helping to improve our world!"
"Thank you, humbly, for the chance to experience this."
"This. Is. Dope. Crazy important and impactful. This is exactly how VR can be used for good."
More culturally competent and emotionally intelligent communities and organizations thrive. While we believe all humans are more similar than different, understanding another person’s perspective and motivations as shaped by their own life experiences is not easy. Traditional teaching methods typically lack engagement and are not effective in shifting perspective. With Steps of Privilege, we move from passive story telling to story living in a safe, judgement free environment.
We are actively seeking strategic partners to deploy this experience:
- Schools & Universities
- DEI Consultants & Advisors
- Community Leaders
