This month, IxDA and UXIrregulars are hosting a talk about how to
create a culture of mentorship in our local UX community.

Wednesday May 6, 2009 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
215 Spadina Ave.
Centre for Social Innovation, Room 120

The format of the evening will be:

1) Video excerpt of Kim Goodwin's Interaction 09 talk, "Each One,
Teach One". (See a summary: http://www.cooper.com/journal/2009/02/kim_goodwin_ixda_keynote.html)

2) Speakers with past experiences will share how they found their
mentor/mentee, what worked in their relationship, and what didn't work
so well.

3) We'll break into small groups to brainstorm how we can foster a
culture of UX mentorship in Toronto.

As always, we'll go to The Rivoli after the event to continue
chatting.

PLEASE RSVP (we got really tight on space last time):

Also, PLEASE spread the word -- anyone with an interest in user
experience / interaction design / information architecture / HCI /
etc. etc. etc. is welcome, and any experience level. Attending doesn't
mean you'll be committed to becoming a mentor or mentee. We just want
to start the conversation.

Hope to see you then,

Meredith & Matt
