Hey fellow designers!

We have another meetup in the pipeline ๐ŸŽ‰! This time, the topic will be about transitioning from Mid-level designer to a Senior/Leadership role. Our speaker will be Ermi Isais:

Ermi has progressed from graphic design to lead UX in the last five years, where she now heads the design team at Divvy. Her learning mindset allows her to continuously evolve and teach her career progression tips to designers she regularly mentors. Sheโ€™s mentored more than 30 designers in her 20-year career on how to successfully transition from graphic design to UX or how to progress from a mid-level to senior/leadership role and has seen much progress to leadership roles through her guidance. In this talk, Ermi will share these practical tips to help designers progress faster, the importance of goal setting, confidence, persuasiveness, and what essential soft skills are needed to lead.

On the 5th Mar, join us on learning, networking, or hang out with amazing designers!

As usual, we will have a Meet&Greet session for people looking for jobs and companies looking to hire to connect. Upon arrival of our meetup, weโ€™re going to be handing out stickers to everyone.

These will be used to identify:
1. Looking for a Job
2. Looking to Hire
3. Here to party (meet a few people, learn a few things)

Please don't forget to mention if you are looking for a job or hire after you RSVP!

We will also be doing a Walkthrough session about Adobe XD 30min prior to the event for anyone wanting to learn more about their amazing product. Come swing by! A designer from Adobe will be here to answer any question and run a quick demo ;)
