SJRI’s more recent semi-annual general meeting was hosted via MS Teams on Thursday November 19, 2020 and included asynchronous voting on a motion to allow Brock-based post-doctoral fellows to affiliate (passed), to extend Dr. Raby’s directorship until July 2022 (passed), and to affiliate six applicants (passed). For more information about each of our new affiliates, please see our November 2020 newsletter and click here for a complete list of SJRI affiliates.

This event also included a synchronous component, during which affiliates split off into thematic break-out rooms to connect with colleagues about

  1. Building Research Collaborations 
  2. Social Justice Issues
  3. Our Lives Under COVID-19 

These discussions have already sparked a new research partnership between two affiliates in different Faculties and preliminary planning discussion about possible future workshops and other events.

Many thanks to all who attended this event and who took the time to vote!
