Houston, Texas

 

Houston’s Hexagon chapter was started in February 2017 by passionate women designers who saw the need for a community of women in UX. Though Houston already offers several outlets for the co-ed UX community to gather, the city’s UX market is growing. This offers the perfect opportunity to establish a space where womxn and non-binary folx can feel secure sharing their industry experience, learning together, and asking questions they might not feel as comfortable surfacing in other settings.

Events include workshops, happy-hour hangouts, and discussions. We are a young chapter, which means we are also flexible! Wherever participants show interest, we’ll adjust to fit their needs (in true user experience fashion).
