Event description

Description

Toronto might be in the middle of a deep freeze in March, so Women in Product Toronto is putting together a compelling event to bring you out of hibernation! This March, WIPTO and Shopify would like to invite you to a workshop on the topic of user experience research.

Larger tech companies often have the ability to invest in UXR (user experience research) teams to elevate the experiences that they build for their customers. Shopify is one example of a company that has strong talent in their UXR department, and enables them to build the best commerce experience in the world.

In this interactive presentation and workshop about UX research (UXR), you will learn what UX and UXR are, how UXR collaborates with other disciplines and a framework that researchers use to choose the right methods. We will walk you through a couple of case studies, and, in small groups, you will put your learning into practice.

Prepare for spring by coming to this event and learning how to use UXR to elevate your product to the next level!



A gentle reminder to all attendees:

This workshop will include group exercises. To be respectful to all participants and to ensure you find a team to join, we kindly ask that all attendees aim to arrive before 6:45pm to secure a seat for this event. Due to the nature of the event and that the doors & elevators may be locked, it can be difficult to accommodate late arrivals.




Be aware of our event policy before you sign up:


Women in Product Toronto aims to create safe spaces & allow for authentic connections of women-identified product professionals. Our events, whether online or in-person, aim to allow women-identified or non-binary product folks to authentically connect as themselves without fear of discrimination, intimidation, invasions of privacy, or abusive behaviour. This kind of environment may not exist for all community members in their working lives; so we strive to provide psychological safety at our events.

For this reason, all events are open only to women-identified & non-binary individuals in the product community.
