About bcXR

Workstreams are where XR Access happens.

Our three workstreams catalyze shared and sustained action around particular focus areas. In the bcXR workstream, we’re highlighting the critical need for accessible XR across markets and industries. bcXR’s current project focuses on inclusively-designed XR workplace tech & its impact on making hybrid workplaces more inclusive.

New Report: The Value of Inclusively Designed XR Workplace Tools

XR Access’s Business Cases for Inclusive XR (bcXR) workstream wanted to explore the connection and potential business value for inclusively designed XR workplace tools and hybrid workplaces. So, the workstream assembled a research team and executed a research project resulting in this report. Purpose of this Report This report aims to begin laying out reasons why organizations adopting XR technologies must think about disability inclusion and accessibility as they pivot to hybrid work and maintain business operations.
