XRA Convenes First XR Advisory Council Meeting

On February 8, the XR Association (XRA) convened the first-ever meeting of Future of XR Advisory Council (XRAC), an independent advisory council focused on defining the extended reality (XR) ecosystem and informing the ongoing work of the XRA.

The Future of XR Advisory Council“There are many critical questions and conversations we need to have about XR technology’s global impact,” said Elizabeth Hyman, XRA president and CEO.  “The XRAC is an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of our industry and get input and feedback from a diverse group of stakeholders to ensure the continued growth and ultimate success of XR.”

At the onset of the meeting, leaders from the XRA shared their vision for XRAC, which include:

  • Articulating a shared vision of a new computing platform that encompasses creators and participants
  • Creating a roadmap that identifies milestones to achieve a shared vision of a new computing platform
  • Developing detailed work plans toward principles and recommendations for policymakers that advance trust, safety and well-being, and diverse talent pipeline in XR

Throughout the virtual meeting, members of the council discussed their thoughts on how the industry should be defined, measure success to ensure the maturity of XR at-large, and key issues the industry should champion collectively. The team also participated in breakout discussions focused on trust; safety and well-being; and diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility.

XRAC is composed of top executives at industry-leading companies as well as representatives from civil society, academia, and former government officials. For the full list of members and to see high-level notes from the first convening, visit the XRAC site.
