Here comes the sixth episode of the CHI Talks series! This time, we have a special guest covering an important but often overlooked problem – the state of interpersonal relationships and communities in our daily lives.

The IT industry is widely known for its remote work policies giving companies limitless room for maneuvering in hiring employees and searching for clients. But at the same time, it causes a new challenge – a lack of connection.

We’re living in one of the loneliest eras in human history. According to the Cigna research, 58% of American adults felt lonely in 2021. Moreover, 79% of adults aged 18 to 24 reported feeling lonely compared to 41% of seniors aged 66 and older. The pandemic has only driven us further apart, and our health has hung in the balance. 

Join the Importance of Community in Professional and Personal webinar on August 22, 4 pm CEST. David Siegel, CEO of Meetup, will explore why adults have trouble making authentic connections and share how people are using technology to find real friendships.
