✨ News & Events

This  Tuesday 5/10, we'll be hosting a follow up to our last UX Night on updating your portfolio! Specifically, we'll help you build a case study for your portfolio for one project in two hours together!

Bring your artifacts, documents, screenshots from your project that you’d like to use and we’ll help you make sense of it! (and also identify a project that you’d like to make a case study on)

As always, looking forward to holding another powerful community space with our QTBIPOC family. Spaces are limited, so make sure to grab a free community ticket if you want to attend. If you have any burning questions that you'd like to ask - feel free to reply back to this email!
Join QTBIPOC Design as we read and discuss books within the intersection of equity, design, tech every other month.

Introducing our next book... The User Experience Team of One by Leah Buley! We'll be meeting to discuss on Tuesday, May 24. Hope to see you there! Be sure to also join us on Slack to stay up to date on the latest book club related updates!
