NEW Downtown UX Study Group & Peer Mentorship

This gathering is about peer mentorship. It is an opportunity for you to share with your colleagues something you’re interested in, whether it be to get feedback on a project, practice for an interview, to demonstrate a proficiency you can share with the community e.g. you do killer infographics, workflows or usability reports; discuss how to work with other professional teams, practice presentation skills - you can make it whatever you want it to be! Participation will be highly encouraged, but not required.  Be sure to bring something to work on  you just might get inspired to share!  Our sole purpose for gathering is to support one another in our professional growth.

If you are

• an independent consultant looking for a second (friendly) opinion

• looking for project collaborators

• working on amping up your portfolio

• just getting started in your career as a UX designer

• a seasoned professional who’d like to help others grow in their careers

• interested in upping the stakes in your involvement in the community

or just curious what this is all about, please join us at the UX Study Group and Peer Mentorship event at BLANKSPACES in DTLA!

Be creative and use this time for whatever you need to move forward in your career.  Everyone is welcome: designers, user researchers, content strategists, developers, project managers, entrepreneurs and others.

Time for presentations will be divided based on attendance so please be prepared to be flexible in your presentation time as it will be somewhere between  5 to 10 minutes.  After the presentations we’ll have 90 minutes to mingle, collaborate, and connect with the people who most resonated with you, or work a bit on a project and get more feedback before the night ends.

6:00 doors open, set up

6:30 presentations will begin

7:30 UX office hours / collaboration / mingle & connect

9:00 wrap up

Bring business cards and be prepared to make lasting relationships.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
