Lunch Webinar: Building Meaningful Connections in an Online World

The Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS) is committed to promoting a healthy, inclusive and supportive environment that fosters mental health and well-being among members of our community.

Webinar Details: In this session, we will discuss what our own personal understanding is of a “meaningful connection”, explore the current research related to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the ways in which it has impacted how we relate to one another, and the small (but important) steps we can take to cultivate and nurture a sense of belonging with our communities and/or supports.

Join FGS as we discuss building meaningful connections in an online world. This virtual event is open to students, staff, faculty and alumni of York University.
