Designing a human-centered fintech platform at Bank of America

UXPA
co-chair of the New Jersey chapter of the  association for UX professionals

I've been involved with the New Jersey's chapter of the UXPA for over three years. The organization is dedicated to mentoring, educating and networking. I enjoy giving back to the design community since such learning events were so helpful to me when I first got started as a designer.

Result

Expanded the membership significantly through social media outreach, research about the topics of interest in the UX community, reinvigorated partnership with Rutgers and recruiting distinguished speakers.

Challenge

The membership of the chapter had fallen a lot.

Chapter Leadership

I volunteered to help the New Jersey chapter of UXPA with social media outreach. I loved being a part of the UX professionals community and stepped up to a leadership role as a co-chair. My responsibilities grew to include co-hosting the meetings, researching topics of interest, identifying and recruiting distinguished speakers, organizing and judging the annual Design Slam.

I had the great opportunity to be on several panels discussing design related topics such as Decoding UX Titles & Job Descriptions and Paths to the UX Profession.

I also delivered talks about data visualization methods and articulating design decisions.

Design Education

Leading the chapter presented me with a unique opportunity to volunteer with grade school educational outreach. This special area of interest emerged as we prepared an event in conjunction with the Computer Science Education Week. UX and Design Thinking is now a part of the K-12 curriculum in many districts around the country, including in New Jersey. However, there is a serious lack of teachers trained in this field and a gap of teaching materials appropriate for the different age groups, especially for young children. The chapter hosted a panel that discussed this issues and follow-up activities.
