Partner & Strategic Marketing Director, Oculus
Paula is the Director of Partner and Strategic Marketing at Oculus. Highly-respected in the video gaming and tech industries where she has worked for 20+ years, Paula perpetually strives to build highly-inclusive places to work and experiences to enjoy. Most recently, she unveiled the highly-anticipated VR for Good initiative, and executive produced nine short films focused on social issues that premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January 2017. Paula envisioned, created, and produced Oculus Connect, the number one global virtual reality developers conference (approaching its fourth year), and champions the largest gathering of female VR developers in the industry by expanding the developer ecosystem through dedicated diversity programming initiatives which support, educate, and produce content by underrepresented communities in entertainment and technology. When she is not applying her rich expertise in business development, branding, and marketing, her vibrant life includes a love of punk rock, champagne, and her inspiring family.
In this session, Pride Foundation filmmakers will explore the impact of their work using 360-video, and share insights for creators and story-tellers who want to partner with nonprofits and social entrepreneurs to address social issues.
