Breaking Bread

Listen here: RIT Intersections Podcast Ep. 35: Breaking Bread 

It’s been said that diversity happens when people of different backgrounds share space in a community, but inclusion only happens when they spend quality time together. In today’s edition of Intersections: The RIT Podcast, Taj Smith, director of diversity education at RIT, talks with Stephanie Rankin, director of foundation relations, about her participation in the Breaking Bread program, which helps faculty and staff bridge the diversity gap and build real relationships.
