We acknowledge the pain, grief, and trauma that people throughout our community are experiencing.
Resources on ways to engage and learn are readily available online. It’s up to each of us to do our own work and determine our role. As a member-driven, professional organization that connects people, UXPA Minnesota plays a role in ending systemic racism.
As the UXPA Minnesota board, we’re starting from our core values as human-centered advocates: listening, empathy, and putting people at the heart of experiences. We are considering ways to amplify diversity and inclusion in existing programming, and to bring the UX community together to address and dismantle the systemic racism at the root of our collective pain and anger.
We welcome your thoughts and ideas on how the UX community can affect change. Please send them to us here. We don't have the answers but we are here, we are listening, and we are ready to do the work.
—Your UXPA Minnesota Board
