Why are we still longing to belong? Join us October 18 to find out.
This is your invitation to hear Kim Samuel at a special RamsayTalks Breakfast.
Isolation is an ancient challenge that’s been much worsened over the past 1,000 days of pandemic life. While we know that COVID can kill us, we must also recognize that lack of connection to the four dimensions of belonging — people, place, power, and purpose — can be just as harmful. Kim Samuel knows all about the power of belonging, and she makes the case that it’s not just a human need but a fundamental right.
She founded the Samuel Centre for Social Connectedness, is the first-ever Fulbright Canada ambassador for diversity and social connectedness, and is a visiting scholar at the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative.
Her new book, On Belonging: Finding Connection in an Age of Isolation, shows how to create lives and places rooted not in material progress or even personal freedom, but in belonging.
