About this event
The Metaverse is still in its early stages, and it is important to make sure that it is inclusive and diverse from the start.
In this Insights Live Webinar, our panel will discuss the state of diversity and inclusion within the metaverse. We will look to uncover the ways in which we can ensure that the Metaverse is an open space of inclusion and diversity.
We will ask how we can ensure that the people who create and maintain the Metaverse are themselves inclusive and diverse, and we look to understand how we can create and support initiatives that encourage inclusivity and diversity in the Metaverse.
Our panel of industry experts will cover topics such as:

Digital storytelling gives diverse voices the freedom that we don’t always see in traditional media. As a creative collaborator on multiplatform experiences, I help multicultural talent to tell their stories the way they choose and enter the conversation. I co-founded B3 Media with the mission to catalyse projects that had diversity at their core. The network is dedicated to getting more diverse voices, faces and stories both onscreen and behind the scenes in the UK’s creative industries. B3 has helped over 2,000 talented professionals get their projects made and screened at major film festivals.
