As the augmented and virtual reality landscape continues to evolve, these emerging technologies open up new ways for people to connect with each other — today and tomorrow. Women are at the forefront of the industry, from creative directors working on state-of-the-art AR effects and storytellers merging immersive theater with VR to the research scientists and game designers pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we’re highlighting some of the women at Facebook and across our industry who are blazing trails to help build the future of AR and VR — and the ways in which this community comes together to inspire and lift up other women.
This is just a small sample of the many women making strides to advance AR/VR every day. This Women’s History Month, we encourage everyone to celebrate all the amazing women in our industry and the important work that they do.
