Registrations are now open for the Purple Shirt Mentoring Program!

Register your interest in becoming part of Purple Shirt's mentoring program.

Hit a bit of a road block and not sure ‘what’s next’ for you in your UX Design/Research career? Not quite sure what you want to do next, let alone where you’d like to be 5 years from now? Or are you starting out in the industry and looking to secure your first UX role?

We recently introduced the Purple Shirt Mentoring Program, where self-reflection is encouraged and the improvement of design skills is a given. It’s a mentoring approach that uses practices that will enable you to build confidence and make meaningful decisions. In your career, yes. But also in your life!

Whether as a Mentee you come to the Purple Shirt Mentoring Program with a specific area you’d like support in e.g 'Transitioning into UX' or 'Portfolio refinement and job interview preparation', or something more general that you may not be able to quite put your finger on just yet, this program is for you.

Together with your Mentor, you will create a personalised plan based on your needs and throughout the sessions they will not only guide you using core UX methodologies and tools, they’ll also share some of their own practical experiences. Your mentor isn’t there to ‘preach’ but more so, to ‘impart’ and share knowledge and encourage growth.

You can be assured your Mentor will always be respectful, approachable and that they too will benefit from the intellectual companionship and engagement with you.

Interested in being matched with a Purple Shirt Mentor? We'd love to hear from you.

Please register your interest by Thursday 30th June or reach out to kimberley@purpleshirt.co.nz with any questions.
