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 womxn in UX across the Bay Area and started partnering with local companies about once a month to host events. We’ve also piloted a successful mentorship program and have expanded the program to other chapters, including NYC, Seattle, Denver, Houston, and more.
Our events range from informal happy hours to maker-themed events (creating succulent gardens at Pinterest, or designing cards that light up at IDEO) to topical panel & speaker events (on negotiation, creative entrepreneurship, empathy). Whatever the activity, we aim to form deep connections between members of our community and provide opportunities to learn from each other.
