What we're about
Ladies that UX Amsterdam is a welcoming and inclusive community that aims to promote female talent and increase female visibility. Our community is inclusive to all background, gender, age, race, and expertise.
Our goal is to create a space for women in UX and tech scene of all levels to engage and talk about their experiences, both positive and negative, and get the support and inspiration that they are looking for.
We run different get-togethers: sometimes with a speaker or a theme, sometimes we will just eat, drink, and see where the conversation goes. The one thing we can guarantee is that you won’t feel pressured to present.
The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. If you want help with a particular UX challenge, you’ll find plenty of willing problem-solvers.

I organize a conference/event that your members might be interested. How can we work together?
We love to establish mutually beneficial relationships with local and international events. As we get partnership requests weekly, we've put together a Partners' Guide (https://www.dropbox.com/s/rwnmkvlbeg0zpfu/LTUXAMS_Partners%20Guide_Aug2017.pdf?dl=0) that details what's required and how to move forward.
I'm looking for female speakers for my conference/event. Can you help?
That's great and we'd love to help! Please see the Partners' Guide (https://www.dropbox.com/s/rwnmkvlbeg0zpfu/LTUXAMS_Partners%20Guide_Aug2017.pdf?dl=0) and let us know the details of your event and what kind of speakers you're looking for.
I have an offer that I'd like to share with your members. Can you promote it in your newsletter?
We receive such requests very frequently. Out of respect for our members and to keep the email communications relevant and high quality, please first read the Partners' Guide (https://www.dropbox.com/s/rwnmkvlbeg0zpfu/LTUXAMS_Partners%20Guide_Aug2017.pdf?dl=0) for what's required and how to proceed.
