XX+UX Israel was founded in 2014 by Dana Cohen Baron, Anat Katz Aromas and Tali Rosen-Shaham because of a shared passion to build a community of women in UX in Israel. Since then, it’s grown to be the largest local chapter in the world, with over 1300 active members on Facebook, including women in design & research, as well as product managers and anyone who is involved with “user experience" professionally.
XX+UX Israel is run by a core group of twenty volunteers who plan events and activities on a regular basis. Most recently, their meet ups have focused on supporting women as public speakers and thinking of how gender perspectives affect the way we design products.
