Beyond Inclusion builds workforce diversity for the metaverse

Beyond Inclusion is a workforce diversity training program that aims to train people in the technical skills necessary for the metaverse.

The deadline for applications is nearing on July 15, and the first program class is expected to debut on August 15. Candidates can apply here.

Lots of people are now dreaming about the metaverse, the universe of virtual worlds that are all interconnected, like in novels such as Snow Crash and Ready Player One. No longer the domain of science fiction, McKinsey predicts the metaverse will be worth $5 trillion by 2030. The time to make sure inclusion — and not the digital divide — prevails in the metaverse is now, according to those creating the program.

Meta is sponsoring the first training class for Beyond Inclusion at the XR Bootcamp (an online training program), and the partners are encouraged that this could be the beginning of a program that could train 100 applicants a year and eventually much larger numbers. The Games for Change event in New York this week is supporting the initiative as a media partner.
