2018 UXPA DC Mentorship Program

Take part in the UXPA DC Mentorship Program! The UXPA DC Mentorship Program is our newest initiative that pairs UX professionals who want to harness the power of our rich UX community by learning from one another. We pair mentors and mentees 1:1 based on overlapping interests, goals, and experiences, and foster the relationship over a 6-month period.

The application period is OPEN for the March-September 2018 cycle through Friday, February 23. Spots are limited so we encourage you to submit your application as early as possible.
