Event Details

Join the University of Waterloo in partnership with CBC Kitchener-Waterloo as we go Beyond The Headlines to discuss the realities unfolding in our post-COVID world. 

This two-part, online series will feature in-depth conversations with researchers who will discuss the issues you are reading about in the news to make sense of the broader social, political and economic implications.

Responding to inequity in our post-COVID world 

The pandemic has exposed issues of equity in our society such as the value of work, gender roles, universal basic income and racial profiling. University of Waterloo researchers will explore whether our post-COVID society may be more responsive, or more divisive.
