Meet The Entrepreneurs Ushering Black Women Into UX Careers In Brazil

As discussions over gender and racial inequality in the technology sector gather pace in Brazil, a group of entrepreneurs is working to address these issues by training black women in careers in user experience (UX) and connecting them with employers.

UX Para Minas Pretas (UXMP), which in Portuguese translates to “UX For Black Girls” was created by Karen Santos in 2019. The São Paulo-based company aims to provide technical and professional training to black women, as well as the community support required to develop a career in the field of UX, which focuses on how a user interacts with and experiences an product, system or service online.
