VR Diversity & Inclusion Training in the USA

October 26, 2018

At Equal Reality we have a mission to ‘instill inclusive culture through responsible progression of exponential technology.

We have a vision where immersive technology helps the human race progress compassion, knowledge, and understanding.

To take action on making this vision a reality, we create diversity and inclusion training in virtual reality. We are pioneering and delivering VR diversity training all over the world. In the last 2 years, we have gone from strength to strength to grow into the world leaders we are today, and will continue to strive to have greater impact.

Current political and social issues around the world, particularly in the United States, make Equal Reality particularly timely.
