Description

Floxies is a free community for women UX/UI designers and developers. Members meet every Wednesday at 5 pm UK time on Gathertown.

There are no requirements to join, other than being a supportive peer and have a hunger for learning. The next step is to request access by filling out an application form. Once you enter the community's Discord server, you will be able to start talking with other members.

Inside the online group, there are topic-specific channels to discuss UI/UX design and Webflow development. These channels' purpose is to ask questions, request feedback, give recommendations, and help other members by providing useful advice.

Additionally, there are channels to casually talk, share interests and hobbies, and network and connect with other women in tech. Overall, Floxies' online group is a very supportive space where you can get the help you need to get unstuck and progress in your projects. Floxies members even participate in mental health events to avoid burnout and other issues that come with being a woman in a heavily male-dominated industry such as technology.

You can also find a job board and a special channel for collaborations. These channels are ideal to expand your professional network and to find new career opportunities. Additionally, you will find a resource library inside the Discord server. Members share new resources every day that will help you further advance in your career.

Furthermore, every week members gather virtually at Gathertown. Most of the time the community invites expert speakers to discuss a specific topic. However, there are also casual spaces to hang out with other women in tech.

Those meetings, along with Floxies' digital academy, are great learning opportunities to expand your knowledge. Indeed, the digital academy organizes educational workshops that provide members with hands-on practice on Webflow and design.
