Inclusive XR Technologies Enable DEIA in Hybrid Workplaces

Date & Time
Thursday, March 17, 2022 - 1:20 PM PST  
Grand GHJK  

Extended Reality (XR), consisting of virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, and other immersive technologies, is poised to reshape how businesses work. At its core, XR joins digital content with the physical world. XR platforms can be flexible and personalized, reaching people wherever they are at any moment. As organizations accelerate their digital transformations, they can use XR to engage employees and customers in new ways. XR creates immersive experiences, allowing people to interact with digital content directly using web browsers, mobile apps, or wearable devices. XR technologies also enable businesses to attract and hire more diverse talent pools.

These technologies have proven benefits for workplaces, including improved job training and enhanced collaboration. To ensure people with disabilities can access these benefits, XR tools must have accessibility features by design. Organizations that prioritize accessibility in the XR technologies they adopt can gain a competitive edge in a tight labor market.

In this session, the Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT) and XR Association will outline themes from an October 2021 white paper, “Inclusive XR in the Workplace”, which they jointly authored. The session will explore questions and share industry examples.
