Rammalogues provide a shared experience and sense of connection through facilitated dialogue.
Through Rammalogues, IExcel:
- builds the capacity for respectful and inclusive dialogue at VCU,
- builds appreciation for difference through reflection and listening,
- models leadership skills,
- builds an overall commitment to excellence and to principles of diversity, equity and inclusion, and
- fosters braver conversations around identity.
Rammalogues focus on topics that are relevant within campus culture. Participants are invited to share their own personal experiences while also bearing witness to the experiences and perspectives of others.
Below is a listing of some of the topics recent Rammalogues have addressed. We can also co-create a Rammalogues session for you and your unit that meets your specific needs.
If you are interested in a Rammalogues session or have a recommendation for one, please fill out this form and we will be in touch ASAP.
What attendees say
The event was well organized; I loved the ground rules and the set up. It was amazing that people were able to share their thoughts and stories.
I found the non-judgmental open discussion more informative & productive than months of devouring books, articles, and opinion pieces on the subject.
