This Pictionary episode was a united effort to support the #DesignForSocialGood cause. Rosemary and Andre joined hands to champion this cause and selected BRIDGEGOOD as the beneficiary. Situated conveniently next to the KTVU studio in Jack London Square, BRIDGEGOOD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to empowering student designers to carve successful careers in UX and the creative industry.
BRIDGEGOOD is all about student empowerment and tech opportunity. For two decades we’ve been on a mission to provide access, professional opportunities, and tech literacy to under-resourced design students and job seekers of color. Our interview with KTVU sheds light on the impact we’ve been making since 2009.
I will miss traveling to colleges across the Bay Area all the way to Fresno. I will miss having the first insights into students’ artwork of the Inspire Oakland Design Challenges. I will miss being at the studio, sometimes by myself, and getting my work done, feeling productive and motivated to keep going. I will definitely miss conducting 80+ interviews to find the best 20 UX apprentices. I will miss working with 14+ companies, annually, to teach and facilitate the UX Design Apprenticeships. I will always miss and treasure my time at BRIDGEGOOD.
