ABOUT LADIES THAT UX: Ladies that UX Vancouver is a meetup group for women in the local UX community. Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment for women (or otherwise underrepresented groups in the industry) to share career experiences and learn from each other.
SPEAKER & BIO: Alexandra (Alee) Furman is a UX researcher born and raised in the greater Vancouver area. Currently she's building and running the user research program at Aritzia, as the company pushes harder into eCommerce and omni channel initiatives. When Alee isn't designing or researching things, she's busy wining and dining at home, hiking around her neighbourhood, or working on her dog Stella's social media presence.
