If we are the ingredients of VR culture than wouldn't it follow that we will be the ones to solve it? This question is meant to invite us to start creatively thinking on how we can increase inclusive and diverse spaces.

community norms and values shared explicitly, discussed frequently
Communication, open mindedness, sense of community, respect for each other
Open minded inclusivity
The ability to report and have people banned for inappropriate behavior
Building real relationships and communities that are focused on something more than casual play.
Setting boundaries and sticking to them. Always building people up and helping, always helping.
Getting men to hold other men accountable for their poor behavior and step in and call them out on it. Shaming from other men is the only way to get them to stop.
Kindness, respect, helping each other, patience, finding people with common interests.
Positivity first, if we bring positive energy it can change the entire atmosphere! :)
I think it will take education so boys/young man understand girls/women play too, and to be nicer to each other. Even being nicer if they encounter kids. Right now VR feels like a free for all for young males showing off to each other how rude/shocking/offensive they can be.
I think having an open mind and helping people who are new to VR understand all that is possible via a headset. I think sharing advice and best practices are key to building the technology for all.
