About #BeBoldForChange in Tech Discussion Panel
Local women in tech explain that exact moment when they themselves took bold action to improve or develop an aspect of their own livelihood, career or business – or that of another woman’s, or women’s status overall. They’ll discuss what constitutes bold action, the conditions necessary to enable bold action, and what it’s consequences are.
About Expose UX Screening
Watch a special episode of Expose UX, the web show where user experience experts help startups improve their products. Filmed at the international Ladies that UX conference, Talk UX, two women-lead startups showcase their talents. One helps blind people perform tasks on inaccessible websites, the other is a tracking device to protect victims with restraining orders.
Judged on their UX Research, Interaction Design, and UX Strategies, the episode triumphs women entrepreneurship while teaching user experience concepts. Featured guest experts are Marti Gold, Managing UX Director of Tonic3; Amanda Stockwell, former VP of UX at 352; and Kelley Mitchell-Price, Global Creative Director for InterContinental Hotels Group.
