Networking creates more possibilities for life or career. However, after interviewing some volunteers about networking, I found that some people feel discriminated against because of their gender, race, or age. Therefore, this project aims to create a networking app that helps people build their networks without unconscious bias and make friends with people from different backgrounds.


Since people tend to network at professional events such as conferences, panel discussions, and workshops. I designed a VR event app that allows remote attendee

through a VR headset. This app, can also interact with other people who are attending this event. Each profile shows a blurry profile picture and the user’s job position. Real profiles are revealed after a certain amount of conversation. This design helps users to reduce unconscious bias when they are networking.
