XR what? An industry with great potential and a range of professional opportunities is still unknown territory for many today. Especially for women who are unfortunately absolutely underrepresented. And that’s what we want to change.

For us, the sharing of experiences comes first. As mentors and role models, we want to inform, support and encourage. As experts, we are committed to strengthening XR in initiatives and in training at schools, universities, and in vocational training and making it more accessible. In addition to collaborating with various strong networks, we also specifically address regional institutions.

On 24th June 2021 from 6pm CET we’ll have an open exchange of experiences from women in XR from all kind of different areas. Moderated by Petra Dahm (Board Member of Extended Reality Bavaria e.V.) with following guests:
