Ux in the Wild: Mentorship

67 views

Published on

Mentorship is important, especially for UX. But how does it work? What does it really mean? Is it limited to people in the same industry? And how do I find a mentor or mentee anyway?

I’d like to share stories from my experience and the mentors that taught me so much, and hear your stories as we explore answers to these questions and more, getting you ready to take on mentorship in the wild.

This discussion was first presented at UX Scotland in June 2018.
