That is some of the purpose behind what we are building at Design Mentors. We are building a platform dedicated to design education, collaboration, and mentoring. There is still a lot to build, but we are excited about the early growth and traction we've seen.
Hey Javier, our marketing site tells the wrong story (and is ugly). We are in process of developing our identity, after that, we'll knock down the current marketing site and rebuild it to tell our story in a much better manner.
Some interesting things to know about us as we have just started building our platform focused on design education and mentoring:
http://designmentors.org, it doesn't look like it yet but our platform already has over 1,000 users and we are focused on education and learning together. We will have a discussions app in the future that will be tied to fostering positive constructive conversation about topics or inspiration
Why is this getting upvoted? dead link.
Hey, this looks great. We are building a lot of similar things in our app at Design Mentors to provide resources for anyone interested to get started in design. If you are ever interested to chat and potentially collaborate on anything hit me up at email@example.com
I think this is great (white male here), primarily for the reason that it will promote discussion, education, and growth at all career levels for the women who attend. This isn't some middle school summer camp where they are going up a mountain to stay in cabins and bash boys. They also aren't attacking or dismissing other events that are attended by all, this is simply a chance for a group of women to get together to learn and grow. I will also say that I do believe it is really important that we see the numbers rise at big conferences not just in gender, but in all aspects of diversity.
The only potential bummer as some have mentioned is that it could be quite cost-prohibitive. However, with the sponsors, maybe the high cost has been somewhat neutralized. And if they see success maybe over time they could do them regionally to find cost measures that make it more accessible to all.
