Working from home is a human rights issue, Prof. Sylvia Fuller tells CBC News
"It's not just a convenience issue for people. It is a human rights issue, insofar as it maps onto folks with some disabilities [and] health conditions [who really need] that flexibility," she said. "[There's] a lot of people who are quietly still not wanting to get infected and wanting to protect their health and that of their family."

Every day I use Sociology at work. The Sociology department at UBC offers great methods courses, which was a huge reason as to why I was hired. My Sociology training has also given me soft skills that help me add value to my projects. I have a deeper understanding of social circumstances and macrostructures that might be colouring the way our subjects respond.
