First hour: Discussing communication etiquette

Second hour: Rue Mapp, founder and CEO of Outdoor Afro

When you receive a text message or a phone call, what is the expected time frame that you have to respond? What about an email – personal versus professional? Does it matter what your relationship is to the person who sent those messages? We have a conversation about the changing communication norms and social etiquette when it comes to digital technology.  Our guests share their perspectives and their advice. In studio:

  • Rashad Smith, project manager for "Shaping Our Stories" with Causewave Community Partners
  • Ana Gomez-Parga, assistant professor in English and communication at Nazareth College
  • Elise Miklich, communication specialist at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and owner of Light Within Candle Co.
  • Emmarae Stein, communications and history student at Nazareth College, co-owner of Floated Magazine, and Connections intern

Then in our second hour, we’re joined by Rue Mapp, the founder and CEO of Outdoor Afro, a nonprofit organization that celebrates and inspires African American connections to and leadership in nature. Mapp will be in Rochester next week as a guest of the Genesee Land Trust, but first, she joins us on Connections to discuss the value of relationships with the outdoors. Our guests:

  • Rue Mapp, founder and CEO of Outdoor Afro
  • Gay Mills, Executive Director, Genesee Land Trust
  • Regina Geames, Community Programs Coordinator, Genesee Land Trust
