Good Evening | Session 8: A Conversation About Shopping Sustainably

About this Event

Good Evenings are monthly Man Repeller events that bring our community together to get a behind-the-curtain peek at industries and topics that inspire us from individuals we admire.

Join us in Man Repeller HQ to hear Leandra M. Cohen moderate this special panel with Céline Semaan, Karmay Gorley and Prof. Catherine Geib discussing sustainable shopping and how emotions can affect that notion. Have you ever shopped while sad? In this talk we want to explore why we are drawn to fill our inner-void with products that we might not even keep. We are sitting down with a professor and a healer to explore what drives these decisions, and how can we do about it?

Hors d'oeuvres and beverages (21+) provided. Doors open at 6:30pm so come by and mingle before the 7pm talk begins!
