    One way to make the VR industry more diverse is by incorporating feedback from under-represented groups. Researcher and Behavioral Scientist, Jessica Outlaw, recruited 20 women (all first-timers to VR) to use different social VR platforms. Using observation, and pre- and post-interview questions, she will report on the findings of this round of user testing. This session will discuss how the participant's expectations about VR influenced their experience, how they approached social interactions, and their perceptions about the potential of the technology. Come learn the specific findings from this study, and get tips on running your own research in the future.


    Attendees will learn what does and does not make a social VR environment inclusive to women. They'll also hear the perspective of diverse people trying out social VR for the first time, and will get tips on running user testing inside of their own VR creation.

    Intended Audience

    VR creators who are interested in optimizing social interactions. People interested in the perspective of women's first-time experiences in VR, what their obstacles are (technically and otherwise) and what makes a VR experience welcoming and engaging over time. Also, people interested in learning tips for user testing in VR.
