    The Contagious Kindness SIG will focus on developing a greater understanding of how we can spread positivity and kindness – at the university, in the classroom, within the community, and beyond. With the world and workplace in an ongoing state of flux, it becomes imperative to understand how emotional states can be transferred directly from one individual to another causing a ripple effect by mimicry and emotional contagion (locally and globally).
