This Has To Happen Before Virtual Reality Can Succeed
The top minds in virtual reality agree.
Representing NextVR, one of the most well-funded VR companies with $35M+ capital raised, I’ve spoken at numerous conferences, events, and my thoughts have appeared everywhere from Yahoo Tech to USA TODAY.
But I’ve noticed something unsettling. There are very few women in virtual reality.
To whoever is reading this, I’m sure that wherever you work, it’s true that the majority of your coworkers are male. In the tech industry, women only represent less than 20% of the workforce. We need to change this.
Inclusion of women in virtual reality is crucial.
Women bring a unique perspective. And the inclusion of them has never been more important in a technology where people are creating these incredibly powerful, emotional experiences where you’re shaping worlds.
