The XR Guild Launches
What is it?
The XR Guild is an association of professionals in the field of XR, Spatial Computing, Metaverse
(and related) who support a common set of ethical principles
Why does it exist?
We provide resources
and mentorship to make the most ethical decisions and to achieve the best outcomes for our members, their employers and consumers overall.
Here is one account of Why the Metaverse needs Ethics
Consider the effects of your work on real people
Think about long-term implications of your decisions
Systems that don't consider ethics almost always fail
Who is in the Guild?
The XR Guild includes XR designers, developers, artists, researchers, PMs, producers, writers, directors, creatives, lawyers, CEOs and more, some with over 30 years in the field.
We welcome professionals at all levels who commit to our shared ethical principles
How does it work?
We are a non-profit membership organization, voting democratically on leadership and outcomes, including our evolving set of principles. We are not a union.
We accept tax-exempt donations
. We maintain independence from commercial interests, while collaborating with other non-profit ethical groups to help everyone.
How do I join?What is expected?
If you agree with our Principles and provide us a contact email, we'll send you a link
We ask all members to donate some of their time to helping Guild members or projects. Anyone who is financially able may donate
to the Guild in lieu of membership fees. We are completely volunteer-run.
