Closing the gap

Hexagon has identified a need for interpersonal and soft skills training, and creating a safe, inclusive space to meet like-minded UXers.

We cover topics not often included at mainstream UX events such as mental health, self-care, and balancing motherhood and work.

what our community is saying

“By the end of the mentorship and school program, I was celebrating the two job offers I had received with my mentor. She gave me an outside perspective and an extra push that was needed and made me feel secure amidst the chaos of career transitioning.”
