Host: UX Research and Strategy

UX Research and Strategy is a registered 501c3 group devoted to teaching and exploring topics related to User Experience Research and Strategy. Started by three very talented ladies, Jen Blatz, Lorie Whitaker, and Lauren Singer, who saw the need to address the gap in these topics in the local UX community. The hope for this group is to enrich and complement the UX Design community through knowledge sharing and partnership.

Whether you are a researcher, designer, product owner, strategist, content creator, project manager, developer, technologist, marketer, customer experience pro or any other discipline, please join us.
