Join the Concordia community, alumni, researchers and friends for a series of conversations processing the American Presidential elections and its aftermath.

Our speakers will provide insight into the impact of the election on Canada, as well as the global economic context, pandemic response, polling trends and data analysis that go into making sense of the news in this challenging time.

This event is part two of two discussions (Nov. 5 & 12) presented in collaboration with University Advancement.

You can join the discussion by registering for the Zoom webinar or watching live on our Facebook.
