Most recently serving as Developer Evangelist at VREAL, she organizes Seattle’s VR and Women in VR Meetups, workshops, and hackathons to ensure that anyone and everyone has access to VR hardware and knowledge.

Hear from a couple of the Founders from our 1st WXR Cohort as they join their WXR Mentors onstage— learn about what it takes to be a helpful mentor, as well as insight into how to find the right mentor for you.
Shared/social virtual spaces must set high standards of conduct, safety, and respect. We’ll explore social norms, how virtual interactions affect the way people build relationships, and what creators and participants can do to keep things going in the right direction.
