Rammalogues

Braver conversations around identity

Rammalogues provide a shared experience and sense of connection through facilitated dialogue.

IExcel aims to to build the capacity for respectful and inclusive dialogue at VCU. Participating in Rammalogues builds appreciation for difference through reflection and listening, and models leadership skills. Rammalogues build capacity for the VCU community to engage in dialogue with an overall commitment to excellence and to principles of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Each month’s dialogue will focus on a different topic and invite participants to share their own personal experiences while also bearing witness to the experiences and perspectives of others.
