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).

Mentorship Program

Current cohort: Fall 2017 (Senior-level)

Our Fall cohort is targeted at senior-level women in UX research and design. We follow a co-mentorship model where women meet in small groups 1x/month for six months - instead of in a traditional 1-on-1 setting. This program runs from September 2017 - March 2018. 

Applications are now closed.
