The industries that form the foundation of the Metaverse, gaming and XR, have historically neglected their women and minority audiences. Now that the Metaverse is here, we all need to come together and make this industry and our future more inclusive, diverse and equitable. Our panel speakers bring their perspective on these issues and solutions, gathered from their experiences walking the halls of academica to leading discussions in boardrooms and inspiring the underrepresented youth of New York. You will be hearing their observations of what’s currently lacking in the industry, how they’re evangelizing these communities to the metaverse, and some tangible takeaways to use as you co-create and collaborate in the Metaverse.
