Why are there so few women leading and influencing the UX, tech, and design fields? What can we do to change that?
This group aims to bring together brilliant and creative women* in the design and UX fields of SE Michigan who want to build and leverage a network of like-minded ladies. Through organizing events and providing a central place for connection, we hope to foster an atmosphere of learning, mentorship, and support.
*We are an inclusive group; if you identify as a woman, and you're involved in the UX, tech, and design fields, you're welcome here. Also, male allies are never turned away.
Continuing that virtual life. Join us for a casual virtual happy hour. Meet new ladies and catch-up with old friends in the UX world. AND to keep us learning and growing, we'll have a 5-10 minute talk from Rebecca Sweeton.
