What we’re about
Well hello there!
In case you haven't heard of us, we're a friendly, open space for like-minded folks to share and learn about all things UX together.
You might have heard of us as part of the international Ladies that UX movement. We exist to help champion women and underrepresented genders in user experience.
Whether you're just starting out on your UX journey or you've been in the game for years, you're welcome here.
There's no such thing as a 'stupid' question in our community – all questions are welcomed – as we're here to help each other learn, grow and laugh.
What we stand for
We pride ourselves on being a safe, welcoming space, not just for women but other underrepresented genders. This absolutely includes – but is not limited to – cis women, trans women, trans men and non-binary folk.
Run with diversity at our heart and throughout our organising group, we welcome members from all races, ethnicities, religions and socioeconomic statuses with (virtual) open arms.
We're as passionate about kindness, equity and inclusion as we are UX and have a zero-tolerance policy on any hate or discrimination whatsoever.
Come, be you, do you.
All we ask is that everyone respects the speakers we hear from, the spaces we share and each other.
What to expect from our meet-ups
Our meet-ups are a chance to network, learn, share stories, hear great speakers and have fun.
We've had previous talks and workshops on:
• content design
• user research
• how to be greener in our UX practices
• cognitive bias
• presenting skills and workshops
• designing forms
• design and ethics
• service design and making it happen in a large organisation
• much more.
As well as UX talk, you can expect fireside chats around mindfulness, developing your career, how we're coping through lockdown and much more.
Want to talk or ask us something?
We'd love to hear your thoughts! Whether you have a burning question, a topic you want to know more about or you'd like to give a talk in a safe space, just ping us a message and we'll get back to you.
'See' you at the next event hopefully!
Upcoming events (1)See all
- Becoming a LTUX Bristol host information sessionLink visible for attendees
This is an information session for anyone who's interested in becoming a part of the LTUX Bristol team.
At our last event, we invited members to explore what's next for the LTUX Bristol community. It was wonderful to find out what people appreciated about past events and what ideas you have for the future.
We love what our community stands for and want to see the group flourish even more. And we both feel it is time to pass on the baton and let a new team take over.
So we're looking for 3 to 4 volunteers to take on the organisation of events and manage the community.
Have you enjoyed attending our events? Would you be curious to hear more about becoming part of a team of organisers?
What to expect at the session
At this session, you can ask questions and get more of an idea of what is involved in hosting LTUX Bristol events.
After 10 years we believe it's time for some fresh energy and ideas and we can't wait to see where LTUX Bristol can go next.
What are we looking for?
- 3 or 4 people to steward Ladies that UX Bristol on the next part of its journey.
What's involved in hosting?
- Organising and hosting monthly events. These could be in-person or online and ideally would be a mix of both.
- Inviting people from within the community and guest speakers to share on topics members are interested in.
- Providing advice and support for the community.
- Sharing useful information with the community such as opportunities and job roles.
Experience and skills
- No experience is necessary but you should align with our ethos of mutual respect and inclusion.
- At least a couple of co-hosts who have worked within the field of UX for 2-3 years. This would help to create relevant events for the community.
- A passion for helping newcomers into the industry and supporting existing community members to share knowledge and ideas.
- You don't need to have experience of running events before, although it would be helpful if at least one team member had some experience.
- Ability to work with others in a team and support each other.
- For at least 2 co-hosts to be comfortable with using various digital tools such as meet-ups and social media platforms to arrange, host and publicise events.
What we'll provide
- Tools and frameworks to assist in the smooth running of events.
- Established social media accounts, and a webpage with the international LTUX organisation.
- Help and support whilst the new co-hosts transition over to running events and supporting the community.
If you have any questions, please get in touch. We are happy to answer them.
Amy and ajara ❤️
