THE EMPATHY WORKSHOP
A balanced association is a healthy one. That's why the NYC UXPA is holding a qualitative event called: The Empathy Workshop. Attending this event will strengthen your understanding of users because you could gain a new perspective. You can expect this event to be less about numbers and more about impressions and networking with your fellow attendees.
Our speaker - Rhode Island based Seung Chan Lim, a Digital Creative Professional for over 10 years - will be presenting some of the findings from his book called "Realizing Empathy: An Inquiry Into the Meaning of Making". He will elaborate on his notion that a creative process is essentially a process of realizing empathy.
He will tell us the story of how he came to this conclusion by starting with a definition of empathy, and then move toward examples of how to realize it. Seung Chan Lim has been sharing his findings all up and down the Eastern Sea Board, and we are honored to have him while he's in town.
ABOUT SEUNG CHAN LIM
Seung Chan – also known as Slim – is a Computer Scientist and Manager by training, Designer by trade and, he says, “Performer by birth.”
Just to give you an idea of his varied and creative background and current interests, prior to embarking on the Realizing Empathy project, Slim served as the Assistant Director of Engineering and Senior Software Design Engineer at MAYA Design, and was also an independent DJ, Music Producer and Performance Director by night. Slim says that when he’s not fighting for the right to empathize and to be empathized, he is acting, directing, dancing, composing, programming, or woodworking.
One lucky attendee will also win a free copy of Slim's book "Realizing Empathy: An Inquiry Into the Meaning of Making".

Deadlines, Transfers, & Policies
All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we'll do our best to accommodate late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.
Regular registration closes the day before the event or when we reach capacity, whichever happens first.
We provide attendee lists to security staff and print name tags on around noon the day of the event, therefore refund requests can only be taken until the day before the event (send refund requests to RSVP@nycupa.org). We regretfully cannot offer refunds to people who cancel on the day of the event. You have until 11AM the day of the event to transfer your ticket to someone else by sending the name of your transferee to RSVP@nycupa.org. We will do our best to accommodate, but we can't guarantee that all transfer requests will be honored.
Seating Capacity & Wait Lists
Seating capacity changes with every venue. If an event sells out beforehand, a wait list may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. Signing up on the wait list does not guarantee a seat; we'll do our best to keep wait-listers informed about the status of available seating.
Registration for this event is online. If you choose to come to the event on a walk-in basis, please bring exact change and be advised that a seat is not guaranteed.
This event may be video-recorded. NYC UXPA reserves the right to use any video footage and/or photography obtained during our events and networking activities on our website or any other community-sharing website, including but not restricted to Facebook, LinkedIn, Vimeo, YouTube, and Flickr in order to promote the visibility of our organization.
On rare occasions a presenter may need to cancel at the last minute. This can happen due to air travel delays, client emergencies, or other factors beyond our control. NYC UXPA will make every effort to secure a backup speaker if this occurs. If a backup speaker can't be found, NYC UXPA will issue a refund.
