UX Design Mentorship for Women of Color in Tech (8 weeks)

Femmecubator will launch a short term, paid mentorship opportunity for women of  color switching to a career in tech, to gain real world experience as up and coming junior developers and junior UX designers. We will select our first 5 mentees in the Spring of 2021. 

During the program, mentees have a team project and have the opportunity to work with instructors and a one-on-one mentor to not only gain collaborative experience, but when interviewing at tech firms they’ll be able to provide a portfolio that demonstrates their work.

Aspiring UX designers

Are you an aspiring UX designer who recently took UX classes, with cross-functional skills and experience? Are you looking to gain experience collaborating in a team environment?

In this training opportunity, you will be joining a SCRUM team and will be mentored by a Lead UX Designer and Lead Engineer. This is a good opportunity to work on a client project with a team of developers and designers.

  • UX Designers will be able to immerse themselves in the product development process through weekly workshops and lab work. UX mentors will lead and review your project weekly. You’ll leave the program with a shiny new client project on your portfolio.
  • You’ll gain access to our community, and a network of mentors during and after the program.
