While Diversity Equity and Inclusion training can effectively cultivate a more inclusive culture, some researchers have documented that they are not as effective as propositioned. For example, in their Harvard Business Review report, Chang et al. 2019 found very little evidence from their study that diversity training affected behavior. Grounded in theories of experience and other scholarly work on empathy and storytelling, Bademosi's dissertation explores the potential of immersive storytelling experience as a promising tool to cultivate empathy and action for marginalized groups.
