How we buy and why - Thursday, May 6, 2021, at 6:00PM.

The shift from bricks to clicks is nothing new. An accelerated consumer preference for online shopping has led to disaster for some retailers, unparalleled growth for others, and has driven innovation across the board. Now, in an already disrupted industry, the COVID-19 pandemic has sent shockwaves through the retail landscape. Hosted by the John Molson Alumni Chapter, this panel discussion will explore the far-reaching effects of the pandemic on our shopping habits and examine the ways in which retailers of all types must adapt to this new reality. Will the retail landscape ever look the same again?

Women & Leadership Corner Office Series at Concordia:

Join us for a conversation with Heather Igloliorte, Associate Professor in Art History and Eunice Bélidor, BFA 12, the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Curator of Quebec and Canadian Contemporary Art (1945 to Today), at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Museums reflect the diversity and the voices of the people within their collections and around them. Are galleries doing something similar – and if so, what steps are being taken? Who are the people who make the decisions about the exhibitions? What is shown in the exhibitions and how is the story told? Do the decision-makers have a decolonial mindset? Are they aware of their own biases? How can we change the demographics of solo exhibitions at Canadian public institutions to be more inclusive?

Tuesday, May 18, 2021, 1 – 2 p.m. Eastern Time
