Join us and help build the LA Chapter of Ladies that UX! No qualifications required, no pressure, just fun.

ABOUT THE AIGA WOMEN LEAD INITIATIVE
Women today outnumber men in AIGA’s membership—as in design schools and disciplines—yet leadership, representation, and parity remain a challenge. The AIGA Women Lead Initiative (WLI) is committed to empowering women in design and advancing the vital discourse on issues facing professional women today without generalizing or segregating women designers. Instead, we aim to address persistent biases and inequities inclusively and constructively through programming around three goals:
— Celebrate the achievements of women in design.
— Cultivate awareness of gender-related issues, while building knowledge and leadership skills.
— Connect by facilitating relationships within and beyond the design industry.

Herman Miller is a 100-year-old-plus company that places great importance on design, the environment, community service, and the health and well-being of our customers and our employees. Innovative ways to improve the performance of our customers’ organizations have become our hallmark.
