Event description


Please join the Product Managers Association of Los Angeles at LA Product Summit 2019!

LA Product Summit 2019 is a day-long PMA.LA member-driven conference that brings together passionate product people who are interested in learning best practices, sharing insights, and networking with top minds in the local product community.

We’ll have the best and brightest from Silicon Beach and the greater LA product community as a captive audience for the entire event. You won’t have a better opportunity in LA to meet 300+ individuals at the cross-section of technology, business, and user experience, including key decision makers.

The theme for this year's event is Diversity in Product!

As Product People, we create software and objects that make up the fabric of the daily lives of others.

The products we build as Product Managers have meaningful impact on the behavior and psyche of our users. The biases that are conceived upon the onset of gathering requirements, working through design, and finalized through testing may have unintended consequences on the people that we build products for.

This conference will not only explore the impact of creating diverse Product teams, but also how to interject inclusivity in Product design resulting in Products that create constructive emotional connections with users.
