This International Women’s Day (and really, every day), we’re calling on you to speak up! You have valuable ideas, experience, and stories to share. We want to see you raising your hand to speak, sharing your ideas, and getting up in front of a room or on stage even when it's difficult and scary. Join us to hear from a panel of incredible women and nonbinary folks in design who will share their experience speaking at tech and design events. Learn how they got started, how they handle their fears around speaking, and advice for getting started.
We’re excited for you to meet the other wonderful folks in attendance. After the panel, we’ll lead you through an exercise on how you can start generating ideas that you want to share with the world!

Hexagon is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with the HQ based in San Francisco, with chapters all over the world. Hexagon first launched in 2013 as a small, local Bay Area meet up called XX+UX. We rebranded in 2017 and are now a community of over 5,500 womxn and non-binary individuals worldwide. Hexagon chapters host community events and run mentorship programs. We’ve held events in London, Sydney, Paris, Toronto, Vancouver, Bangalore, and more. Check out our chapters.
Beyond our current programming, we aim to provide resources for those entering the field and encourage individuals with more experience to pursue senior roles. We hope that Hexagon helps drive the conversation around diversity and inclusion in UX. Implicit bias in these areas is perhaps the greatest inhibitor of womxn’s growth — it affects how we hire, how we interact with co-workers, and how we recognize and promote “talent”. We know that diversity drives creativity, but change needs to come from within companies themselves and how they think about their own success.
Ladies That UX is a global organization founded in Manchester, UK in 2013. We have over 50 chapters on six continents and host monthly events all over the world on UX skills and career paths, as well as community building and networking. Check us out at www.ladiesthatux.com
