GatherVerse Summit 2022
Demystifying the evolving nature of cyber communities on Metaverse
As more communities encourage women to join or choose CyberSecurity as a career.
The dangling questions around us are – how can we support and motivate the existing workforce in CyberSecurity? Also, What do cyber communities mean for the Metaverse?
In this panel, we will discuss the importance of collaborative learning, continued and reverse mentorship, experience metaverse-like projects, emphasizing the true value of diversity in securing organizations, targeting the creation of metaverse by companies, and our world as a whole.
Transgender Representation in the Metaverse
My hope is that this presentation can serve as an invitation for us all to understand and appreciate that every human on earth is looking for the same things – to feel accepted and respected as our authentic selves.
Representation and safety need to be a top priority in the metaverse for all people. As a Transgender person who found my community and support in the late 1990s on message boards and now as an experiential studio business owner developing in the Metaverse, I will share my experience and insights for a more equitable future.
Building Equity in the Metaverse
The intrinsic contract of freedom granted to our sense of self is a key contributor to the overall enthusiasm within our technological transition into Web 3.0 for most people.
As we converge towards transmedia and beyond, the commodification assets, access, and authority are precursors to this unprecedented shift into a new state of self-awareness of who we are, what comprises our relationships with others, and the legacies of our pasts.
Historically, systems that are based on our human constructs of economics, race, and biology traditionally have been complicit in fostering biases, classism, and the marginalization of many participants that directly impact their quality of life and generational opportunities for success.
Will the technologies of tomorrow enable us to overcome these systemic barriers to agency for underrepresented contributors or do we foresee a digital rendition of societal constraints being implemented to anatomize our humanity yet again?
We are honored to Gather an unprecedented group of industry experts, all actionably passionate and uniquely qualified as the preeminent leaders in developing equitable outcomes in technology implementation within their respective fields.
Please join us as we share a robust and insightful dialogue identifying the root causes and utilizing our 7 Standards to chart a path forward together to achieve this critical point of equitable existence in the Metaverse.

The Future of Child Safety & Mental Health in XR & the need for Metaverse IQ
Join Raulvin Coke & Shea Richburg-Coke Co-founders of Future Wise Group for a talk on The Future of Child Safety in XR & the need for Metaverse iQ
As with anything new, the Metaverse creates a level of uncertainty and will introduce unforeseen challenges that disrupt our current way of life and the way we engage in and outside of this new environment.
It has the opportunity to usher in a host of new situations and scenarios that our children’s young developing minds have not experienced.
During the session, the founders will discuss some of the concerns & dangers children are exposed to in the Metaverse and the impact it can have on their mental well-being.
Finally, they will introduce what they have coined as the Metaverse Intelligence Quotient or Metaverse iQ. A behavioral framework that if embraced by children, adults, and developers can help mitigate a version of the Metaverse that can be disastrous!

Flourishing in a Friendly Metaverse: Wellness and Connection in XR Experiences
We’re gathering for a wide-ranging discussion exploring trends and future directions of metaverse/Web 3.0 experiences to foster wellbeing, social and spiritual connection, and new leadership that embodies a sense of flourishing.
What kinds of experiences can we create with extended reality that are more effective, connected, scalable, and transformative than those present in our physical world? We’ll consider guiding principles for individual and shared social experiences focusing on wellbeing, therapeutic, spiritual, and creative applications.
We’ll also address the merits of guided, instructional and self-directed experiences, as well as integrations of game design. This roundtable is an active investigation of guiding principles for creating meaningful wellness experiences and building consciousness in the metaverse.
