UX Speakeasy is a 501c3 nonprofit group for people in the San Diego User Experience (UX) Community, and is the local chapter of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) (http://www.ixda.org/). Interaction Designers, UX professionals, HFEs, User Researchers, Content Strategists, IAs, Visual Designers, Usability Professionals, Experience Strategists - you'll find them all here plus a few more. If you are a user experience professional and are interested in connecting and strengthening the local San Diego UX community, welcome to UX Speakeasy.
Join us each month for our monthly meetups which are informal events that allows members of our UX community to connect and share with each other. There is usually a short discussion, activity or talk on varied topics but the main focus of the monthly meetup is generally social; networking, sharing ideas, connecting.
In addition to the monthly meetup, look for us to host separate educational events throughout the year like the UX Speakeasy Conference, Sketchcamp SD and MOBd Up (Mobile Design Uprising), as well as IxDA sponsored events.
UX Speakeasy proudly presents - a partner event with Designing Women!
SIGN UP HERE:
Throughout its history gender equality has been described as a “women’s issue.” Women were the ones at the forefront attempting to tackle problems like pay equity and equal representation and men tended to sit out of gender equality discussions for a number of reasons.
The future requires a united approach towards finding a solution. Each of us frames our own intentions and interactions around gender norms and we need to inform, collaborate, educate to realize the future of gender equity.
Our next speaker, Jonathon Colman (our first male speaker at Designing Women), asks the question: what do we owe to each other? As we move through our new remote reality, perhaps now is the perfect time to learn new ways to support each other and work to bring to the world the equity we’d like to see.
Join Designing Women and UX Speakeasy as we present Jonathon Colman in a remote event hosted on Kast. Jonathon Colman (@jcolman) leads product designers and the global content design team at Intercom. He's a Webby Award-winning designer and a keynote speaker who’s appeared at over 90 events in 9 countries on 5 continents. He’s worked on the web since 1994 and is grumpy it’s not done yet.
