What are Local Groups?
Local Groups will expand your career network—whether you are interested in learning new skills, finding job opportunities or looking for a new employee.
A Local Group is a group of people who, like you, are passionate about design. Local Groups organize meetings to get inspired, have fun and learn from one another.

Meet-Up Details

I wish I was there to join the first Meetup, it seems like it was a good talk. The next can be at my place, online or your pick for Cafe. Please let me know in the comments which you would prefer! If it’s a bigger group than 10, we will need to pick a place or meet online.

It’s going to be an informal, cozy meet-up with fellow designers! I also wanted to make this meetup focused on humanitarian issues we are facing globally today and brainstorm technical solutions.

To give you some content I wanted to discuss, perhaps in the next meeting… here are some links to my blog posts where I am writing about some of these to get the conversation started: -

Mini Hackathons for Refugee Kids
HCI Against Human Trafficking
Hackathon Reflection

List of topics I wanted to expand on:

  1. Humanity-centered design to solve the world’s most pressing issues and how important it is to collaborate with designers in various professions, from service design, to ux and ui, and management.

  2. Organizations or design groups to join to design for positive change and/or inspiration.

  3. Areas you like to design for (ex. combating human trafficking, biotech, wildlife, medical, environmental, refugee crisis, etc.) and how do we tackle these issues as UX professionals?

  4. Best design for humanity events to attend.

    Please feel free to share yours as well or what has been discussed in the first meeting, so we can continue exploring those as well! Thanks!!

Meet-Up Discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Chicago For Humanity held on Nov 19, 2022. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

I’d love to attend online on Dec. 17th. I actually live in Kalamazoo, MI but the closest “local” groups are Chicago, Ann Arbor, or Detroit. I’m also not working professionally in UX Design yet. I’m currently an eager student in the process of trying to make this career change. Hopefully neither of these factors prohibit me from joining. Thank you!

Please log in or join us to post comments in the discussion.
