Diversity & User Experience (DUX) Open Calls

Open Calls

Open Calls are the Fourth Tuesday from 2pm to 3pm (Pacific). Beginning with January 2022, DUX Open Calls use a running agenda format for the year, with the newest meeting consistently at the top of the document. This offers easy context and searchability.

Login information is included at the top of the agenda. Contact Elizabeth Duell if you would like to be added to the DUX Discussion List to receive the Open Call reminders and other program information.

The DUX Team encourages all Alliance member staff to attend our open calls, especially if your work includes user experience, accessibility, or diversity, equity, and inclusion. If you have a question to ask or an issue to bring up with the community, contact Amy Coughenour or use the Anonymous Ask form!
