We have a new mentorship matching program available to you! Our goal is to facilitate and connect up local mentors with local proteges in order for you to share your experiences and grow into even better designers.
Read on to learn more.
- Mentor: A Senior level UX Professional who is interested in advising, guiding and training another UX professional.
- Protege: A UX Professional who has shown interest in being advised, guided and trained by another Senior level UX professional.
Taking part as a mentor or protege is a great way to:
- Accelerate learning in the UX field
- Develop professional relationships
- Give and receive valuable feedback
- Mutually benefit from shared learning & teaching
- Identify areas of growth
- Increase self-confidence by improving your skill level
Who is this for?
The UXPALA mentorship matching program is available to all. It is also possible for mentors in the program to seek mentoring assistance themselves from those with greater experience or extensive skills in a specific area.
Our mentors dedicate much time and effort to help you grow. If you are looking for a job, this is not the right program for you.
We are looking for mentors with 2+ years’ experience who are willing to guide fellow UX professionals.
We are also looking for enthusiastic proteges who are looking for mentorship!
How does it work?
We believe in building mentorship relationships. UXPALA will match a protege with a suitable mentor based on the information they provide us. Mentoring can occur remotely or in person, in groups or one-to-one. The mentoring experience can take many forms, from work feedback to career guidance or even just a coffee chat. We provide mentors and mentees with talking points and goal setting documentation to help them on their way. This program is designed to expand organically as you get to know each other a little better.
Step 1 – Submit interest
Fill in our online Mentoring Interest Form ( takes up to 15 minutes to complete).
Keep an eye on the UXPALA Meetup page for mentoring events.
Step 2 – Matching begins
The UXPALA team will work on finding you a match with a suitable local UX professional based on the information you provided to us.
Step 3 – Connect
We put you in contact with one another and provide goal setting information for your first meeting.
Step 4 – Happy?
We check you are still happy with your match. If you are not sure if your match is a good fit for you, your details will go back into our database so we can find you another match.
Step 5 – Check-In
We will be checking in a little later on to ensure you are still getting the most out of the program.
Due to the personalized nature of the program, we have limited mentorship matching spaces available. We try our best to match as many of you as possible with a suitable mentor. You will be entered into the next round of matching if unsuccessful, so keep an eye on your email.
