About Hexagon

 

When we first launched in 2013, it began as a small local meet up in the Bay Area called XX+UX. We rebranded in 2017 and are now a community of over 3,000 women worldwide. Hexagon hosts community events and mentorship programs where every event is hosted by a different company and features something unique about their culture or industry. We’ve held international events in London, Sydney, Paris, Toronto, Vancouver, Bangalore, and more. Check out our chapters.

Beyond our current programming (events & mentorship), we hope that Hexagon helps drive the conversation around diversity in tech. Implicit bias is perhaps the greatest inhibitor of women’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.
