Farhana Begum

Lead UX Researcher, Integral Ad Science

Statement: As Vice President of the NYC UXPA, I gained valuable knowledge working the current board of directors. We spent the last year listening to member feedback, growing the leadership team, building the leadership board, revamping the mission, planing a complete website redesign, and developing an accessibility policy. The work done this past year sets a strong foundation for the next year. It makes me confident we can become an even more user-centered organization. I am excited about the opportunity to continue working with leadership and the board to bring great events to the NYC UXPA community, in addition to launching a redesigned website that supports our community when it comes to growth, engagement, and retention.
