Regardless which user experience-related group in Toronto you feel most a part of, we hope you'll come out to this event!
This month, we're talking about how to create a culture of mentorship in our local UX community.
The format of the evening will be:
1) Video excerpt of Kim Goodwin's Interaction 09 talk, "Each One, Teach One". (See a summary on the Cooper Journal.)
2) Various speakers will share how they found mentors/mentees, 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.
Absolutely anyone is welcome (we'd love representation from all areas of the experience spectrum), and attending doesn't mean you'll be committed to becoming a mentor or mentee. We just want to start the conversation.
As always, we'll go to The Rivoli after the event to continue chatting.
PLEASE RSVP here on Upcoming, as we do have a limited amount of space!

UX Irregulars are a rag-tag, fugitive fleet of user experience designers, researchers and strategists who design mostly Web interactions, but also software, and sometimes crazy things like ski hills. http://groups.google.com/group/UXIrregulars/
