We are super excited to welcome Chelsea Hostetter in their first talk & workshop for the Code Chrysalis community. No technical background is necessary---this is a great talk for anyone interested in UX/UI design.


7:00pm - Doors Open
7:30pm - Introductions
7:40pm - "Designing for the LGBTQ Community" by Chelsea Hostetter
8:20pm - Q&A
8:45pm - Networking


We as designers and developers fret over the small details. How will this be implemented? How can we make this easy to use? In these small details and assumptions is where one of the largest failures in technology for nonbinary and transgender individuals comes. Attend this interactive workshop to learn how to recognize your own limitations and to design and develop better for those in the LGBTQ community.


Chelsea Hostetter is a Senior User Experience Designer currently working at Goodpatch, Inc. in Tokyo. They have been designing since 2013, and has worked for clients such as Capital One, Samsung and FedEx. They have researched the LGBTQ community in Texas and is planning on doing another round in Tokyo. They hope that their work will help bridge empathy gaps between tech and the queer community.

Code Chrysalis is a 12-week, full-time advanced coding bootcamp located in the heart of Tokyo🗼. See why we are an industry leader in technical education in Japan🗾.
