Event description
Join us at our Lightning Talks event to cheer on our speakers or practice a short talk!

About this event

Women Talk Design, Ladies that UX Boston, and Students of UXD invite you to join us for an evening of talks by new and experienced speakers, on topics in UX design. Our theme for this event will be: **My UX Journey**

Our Speaker Lightning Talks event offers an opportunity for new and experienced speakers to practice a short talk, in front of a safe supportive audience.

One of the best ways to learn as a speaker is by watching other speakers practice their craft. We invite you to join the event as a supportive audience and pay attention to what our speakers do well. Our audience will meet one another (yay, Zoom breakout rooms), support our speakers, and provide feedback on the talks. What can you take away for your own speaking practice?

Speakers have been invited because they are delivering a talk for the first time, testing out new material, or looking for practice before presenting their talk in front of a larger audience.

We hope you’ll also leave inspired to speak at a future event.


  • Welcome from Ladies that UX Boston, Students of UXD, and Women Talk Design
  • Meet a fellow audience member (Zoom breakout)
  • Lightning Talks, Q&A + Feedback
  • Small group chats (Zoom breakout)
  • Goodnight!

At Women Talk Design, we’re on a mission to see more diverse speakers on stage.

We elevate brilliant women and gender non-binary speakers and their talks so organizers can better discover them, provide tools, information and resources to organizers on how to design more inclusive events, and offer training, events, and community for new speakers.
