The Sandbox Launches Diversity and Inclusivity Center in the Metaverse

To encourage more representation in Web3.

The Sandbox is partnering with the People of Crypto Lab (POC) on a diversity and inclusivity center in the metaverse. The space is titled “The Center for Belonging” and will launch in June during The Sandbox Alpha 3 season.

Included in the Web3 initiative will be the release of a diverse avatar collection featuring over 57 skin shades representing all ethnicities and backgrounds, as well as differently-abled people. Additionally, there will be unique gamified experiences, a social hub, and an education hub. To kick off the experiences, the space will host the first Metaverse Pride event and feature unique play-to-earn games that have been developed to celebrate the communities differences.

POC, the force behind the movement, is a creative and innovative lab that is dedicated to increasing diversity, participation, and representation in Web3. According to data provided by the lab, over 70% of non-crypto-owning women rated their crypto knowledge as low or very low. POC Lab is changing this by bringing Web3 education to underserved groups who make up the global majority.

The lab is helping to develop, invest and promote brands that have diverse stories, teams, and projects. It does this by empowering the creation of IP brands, blockchain games, multi-media content, and NFT projects. At the core of its efforts, the lab aims to serve projects that represent women, black, brown, people of color, differently-abled and LGBTQIA+ creators, developers, and brands.

To achieve its mission, POC has partnered with a number of industry-leading brands like Polygon and Ledger alongside strategic advisors including Stephanie Smellie, the VP of partnerships for Dapper Labs, and Betty, the founder of Deadfellaz.
