The VR/360 medium is taking off, but is everyone along for the ride?  If we assume that VR/360 storytelling will go the way of the male-dominated field of gaming and game design, are Women/POC/LGBT/PWD at risk of becoming co-opted, misrepresented and under-represented in yet another area of our media culture?

This presentation takes a look at the research behind empathy and VR, and the implications behind not getting involved in early efforts to define the medium’s potential to cross boundaries in storytelling.
