San Francisco Bay Area

Founded in 2013, the Hexagon Bay Area Chapter is where Hexagon all started! A few UXers at Google were determined to cultivate a community for women in UX across the Bay Area and started partnering with local companies about once a month to host events. Not only that, but we’ve piloted a successful mentorship program and have expanded the program to other chapters, including NYC and Seattle.

Each of our events in the Bay Area has a unique theme created in collaboration with the host company and Hexagon to ensure our events have a mix of passive and active learning. We have a lot of maker themed events (creating succulent gardens at Pinterest, or, designing cards that light up at IDEO) as well as topical (negotiation, creative entrepreneurship, empathy).

We offer a 3-month mentorship program where those who identify as women are matched with mentors based on compatibility. Conversations help mentees develop their skills, confidence, and recognize their potential. We also offer a senior co-mentoring group, allowing senior women to discuss issues together. Learn more.
