Only one ‘influential’ woman in UX? Surely not!
Albeit a little delayed, I quickly wanted to draw attention to the post of Grace C. on LinkedIn, who pointed out that a recent UX influencer list she had seen had inlcuded only one woman.
UX has always been a very inclusive industry, with emphathy and understanding being core competencies of anybody involved — which are traditionally very female qualities (although I know tons of men who are really good at that too).
In any case, wanted to shout out to Grace for poiting this out and starting a good discussion. Also very happy to hear about some amazing female UXers who I had never heard about on her list.
