Ladies that UX in Amsterdam | Mobiquity hosts event

Mobiquity is excited and proud to announce our partnership with Ladies that UX Amsterdam (LTUX Amsterdam) to positively promote, mentor, and empower women working in the design space. The goal of our partnership is to provide a platform for mentors and mentees to create relationships. After last year's positive feedback from participants it's clear that mentorship programs are a great learning experience for both mentors and mentees.

The first edition of the mentorship program in 2018 had around 60 participants from various UX and Design disciplines of all levels or experience. Most participants built long lasting relationships and have continued to communicate beyond the program. During the program some mentees worked together with their mentor towards a well defined goal, while others received advice and guidance as needed.

There were a lot of learning opportunities along the way for mentees, mentors, and the Ladies that UX organization. Having this in mind and seeing demand from the community, we are proudly launching Ladies that UX Amsterdam - Mentorship Program 2019.

This year the mentorship program will run from April 2019 to August 2019. The idea is to match experienced designers, researchers, and POs with less experienced designers or ladies who are early on in their careers. The mentees will be challenged to work on their goals while utilizing the guidance and support of their dedicated mentors.

Ladies that UX Amsterdam Testimonials

“I finished the LTUX mentorship program feeling satisfied and accomplished. LTUX set me up with a great mentor, who was always there to listen and provide feedback. This program made me realize anyone can achieve whatever they dream up. For which, I will always be grateful to LTUX for this wonderful experience.” - Sarah Soha, UX Designer

“I’ve been trying to put together my portfolio for ages but always felt overwhelmed. With my mentor’s help I was able to showcase the projects in a way that I was proud of. I couldn’t have done it without him!”- Rai Sharmistha, UX Designer

“I learned what being a mentor is all about. At the beginning of the program I was sure that as a mentor, I had to be very structured and really prepared before each meeting. During the program I actually understood that my job is mostly listening to my mentee and offering hands on advice & support when needed. Being flexible is what kept the mentorship on track.” - Poli Gilad, Sr.UX Designer
