This month, IxDA and UXIrregulars are co-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
FREE

The format of the evening will be:

1) Video excerpt of Kim Goodwin's Interaction 09 talk, "Each One, Teach
One". (See a summary:

2) Various speakers 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
