Black History Month Panel & Happy Hour - Sponsored by Flatiron School


This month we've teamed up with Black UX Austin to bring you a curated panel of female black design leaders as we celebrate Black History Month!

Join 4 Black female Sr. UX Researchers as they discuss their experience within UX spaces. We will dive into creating space for diversity and inclusion in design as well as in the workspace. We will discuss moments of great challenge and moments of joy. We will discuss questions around allyship and whether leaning in is a viable strategy for Black women in the tech space.
