Can experiencing discrimination in VR make you less biased?
We are very excited to hold our second immersive technologies for education and research meetup event.
The Open University will be talking about the virtual inclusion project and how it's been received at schools with their attempt to promote social inclusion values and tackle bullying towards people from different background.
You will also hear from VRFocus about their diversity initiative (VRDI) which has empowered a number of people from under-represented groups to follow a path towards careers learning extended reality (XR) skills. We will highlight some of the interesting training opportunities out there that you could benefit from to get you upskilled in XR.
If you would like to introduce yourself to us, please fill out our Google form. Looking forward to seeing you!
