Mentorship Cohorts

Our program promotes learning partnerships among professionals in the UX industry as well as those getting started in the field. We aim to match (as best we can) UX professionals based on various criteria, which includes their career development goals and area of expertise. In our last cohort, we matched 85+ mentees with mentors!

Our August – September 2023 cohort has begun! There were limited spots available and applications were assessed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Completing a mentee application does not guarantee that you will be matched. In the event that we do not have enough mentors, you may be added to a waitlist for the next cohort. If you are matched with a mentor, we would like you to plan to have scheduled online meetings every other week.

If you have any questions about the next cohort, please drop us an email at
