  • Bold moves and go for it!

    9 March 2017

    On International Women’s Day 2017 Ladies that UX and General Assembly hosted an amazingly inspiring panel on equality in tech and people for change.

    Sophie Mitchell, Julie Kennedy and Merje Shaw are not only three successful ladies that UX but, most importantly, ladies who dare to take every opportunity, who are not afraid of facing risk or stepping out of their comfort zones – ultimately, ladies who boldly seize the moment.

    Their stories, views and contribution to a network that supports and empowers women to follow their passions, are truly inspiring examples of how much can be achieved by being bold.

    “There’s no point in waiting for the perfect time because it never happens – you either do it or you don’t” – Merje Shaw
