Women in XR: Changing How We Work, Play, and Interact 

With a panel of other Autodeskers and customers, Dagmara Szkurlat & Qian Zhou discuss why more inclusive design is needed in XR and how women can get involved in designing for the future of XR.

There’s a strong social aspect and a new way to communicate with people” while Dagmara encourages people to, “try the technology then think about what content you want to see—that’s how we’ll get more inclusive content.”
