Ruining Dinner: Religion as the Silent Diversity

Religion is one of the topics that no polite person should bring up at a dinner party, but we're bringing it up at DIBS. How does religious identity fit into diversity and inclusion work? Why is it important to talk about? And how can our community create belonging for religious and nonreligious identities?

We'll explore these questions and more, led by JillAnn Knonenborg, Virginia Tech's Assistant Dean for Interfaith Leadership.

Statement about accessibility and accommodation

The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible event. All virtual events will have automated captions. Recorded events will have edited captions available soon after the event. If you desire live captioning or a sign language interpreter, please contact the organizer two weeks before the event. 

For in-person events, the main VTCSOM building at Riverside 2 is wheelchair accessible from the elevators inside the parking garage. Blind or visually impaired users may need assistance finding the elevators under the building, or using the stairs in front of the building.

If you need a reasonable accommodation to attend an in-person event, please contact the organizer of the event. All reasonable accommodation requests should be made no less than 2 weeks before the event. We will attempt to fulfill requests made after this date but cannot guarantee they will be met.
