In the past few years, the field of user experience (UX) design has exploded. And yet, like tech in general, women are underrepresented in UX.
That’s why we’re excited about XX+UX, a monthly meetup for women in UX with the goal of fostering greater diversity in the field.
The first #XXUX
event (photos attached) was held at Google HQ in October 2013, where attendees created “story cards” that represented themselves or their journey into UX. Since then, there have been ten XX+UX meetups in the Bay Area, Austin, and Paris, with upcoming events in New York on 7/15 (xxux-etsy.eventbrite.com
) and London on 7/23 (xxux-london.eventbrite.com
), thanks to partnerships with LinkedIn, Salesforce, Pinterest, Etsy, Airbnb, Medium, Opower, and Ladies that UX.
We’re proud to support this burgeoning, international community of women in design, research, and technology who can connect, share stories, and mentor each other online and offline.
