Even before the coronavirus crisis, humans had been drifting toward individualism and apart from one another, creating an increasingly human-free world. How has this trend toward disengagement with humanity influenced the way we're responding to COVID-19, and how could the pandemic either exacerbate or ameliorate our disengagement with one another?

Social psychologist and Northwestern Kellogg School of Management professor Dr. Adam Waytz will explore these questions and more, drawing on his new book, The Power of Human: How Our Shared Humanity Can Help Us Create a Better World.  

This webinar will be available through WebEx at this link.  Please use passcode 1234 to access. The talk will begin at 12 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, May 5.

This is part of the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs’ Confronting COVID-19: Global Implications and Futures webinar series.
