Applied Empathy is a monthly conversation series held at Sub Rosa’s studio in Manhattan. Each discussion features individuals who incorporate empathic behaviors into their professional and personal lives. In conjunction with a Sub Rosa moderator and audience, they discuss a unique theme pertaining to empathy and their respective careers.
The inaugural evening, held on March 29, centered around the theme Changing Tastes: How Design Shapes Demand. Sub Rosa’s Founder/CEO Michael Ventura moderated a discussion with special guests Piera Gelardi (Co-founder/Creative Director, Refinery29) and Pepin Gelardi (Partner/Head of Product Design Strategy, Tomorrow Lab).
