About the Cause

Cyber XR Coalition

The CyberXR Coalition believes that we need to go Beyond Inclusion and foster a pipeline of talent from diverse backgrounds. It is an effort to create equity and provide BIPOC & historically marginalized minorities with bootcamp-style training, followed up with career development sessions and potential job placement opportunities

Despite a decade of attention and recent statements of commitment to equitable access opportunities, current data suggests that very little progress has been made in increasing representation across all levels of the tech sector.

These disparities are not just harmful to communities, rather, it is an issue of significant global importance for meeting economic demands. The business case for diversity is very strong. Diversity wins.

The coalition aims to remove financial barriers for aspiring XR professionals and enable a minimum of 100 scholars every year to be trained in XR development and join the XR industry workforce.

This collaborative effort enabled by XRSI, and their training partner XR Bootcamp will create a beginner and experienced level XR talent pipeline, allowing employers to select from a diverse and inclusive pool of talented XR professionals.

To help train more underrepresented groups for positions in XR Technologies, the CyberXR Coalition , XR Safety Initiative (XRSI), and its partner XR Bootcamp are the ones behind and operating the Beyond Inclusion scholarship program. Meta joins as a first major sponsor for the first cohort of 15 talents. More sponsors supporting the skill-to-job-ready educational program for underrepresented talents are going to be announced at AWE. The goal: graduate 100 ready-to-hire XR Engineers every year!
