What is Whitelight?

Culture

Culture

We believe in the power of collective wisdom to create sustainable culture change. Prioritising lived experiences over imposed solutions, we foster environments of deep listening to inform meaningful cultural developments. We strive for collective ownership and work to strengthen existing cultures while promoting intercultural understanding and shared values where there are perceived differences.

Innovation

Innovation

Our approach to innovation harnesses new and novel ideas to create lasting, exponential impact. We focus on incremental, adjacent, and disruptive innovation; where incremental innovation occurs organically in healthy cultures, adjacent innovation is incubated in parallel to business as usual and disruptive innovation changes the current paradigm instantly. To address society's most complex challenges we support ambitious leaders with the courage to innovate.

Co-Design

Co-Design

Our co-design approach engages all relevant stakeholders in the design process to ensure outcomes meet the needs of the collective. With the mantra "nothing about us without us", solutions are designed for, with, and by those most impacted by a problem. While a co-design approach requires skill and patience to navigate, we believe that by redistributing power and embracing diversity, solutions become more meaningful and sustainable in the long term.

Design Thinking

Design Thinking

Design thinking is a simple framework available to anyone wanting to move from a current state to an imagined ideal future. We have worked with thousands of people from across the world to build their capacity to innovate with the principles, process, and tools of design thinking. Our simple and powerful approach involves the phases Inquire, Ideate, Implement, and Reflect, and key mindsets of empathy, optimism, and experimentation.

White light Education has worked with Yarra Plenty Regional Libraries in Melbourne, Victoria since 2021 to create and embed a culture of co-design. Focusing on a co-design culture has meant that we can collaborate with our communities to understand how libraries can work and partner to actively improve people’s lives. This strategy also supports our member councils’ place-based approaches and the Victorian State Government’s focus on community consultation. With Christian’s support we’ve built an excited and high performing team of co-design champions and they have gone on to win large government grants to work with local communities, many of whom are disengaged with the library. Our staff and communities are seeing the difference a co-design approach makes. I would highly recommend White Light Education to any organisation or community looking to build a sustainable culture through co-design.
