Meet Your Teachers

Everybody deserves accessible, quality education

Especially for our queer and BIPOC communities, breaking into or excelling in the creative industry shouldn’t be gated by expensive bootcamp courses or inaccessible professional organizations. The passion to create and conviction to thrive should be the only requirement to finding success in the UX industry.
We created this organization as our form of joy and celebration of our community.
