Safe Zone trainings are workshops that educate participants on how to be more inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community. At the end of every training participants sign an agreement and join a roster of campus and community members who have pledged to be an ally. Every participant receives a placard that indicates which training they’ve completed that they can hang outside of their rooms or offices.
Challenge preconceived notions on sexuality, review basic definitions, understand the coming out process, learn paths to being an ally, and discover resources.
Challenge preconceived notions on gender, review basic definitions, understand the transition process, learn paths to being an ally, and discover resources.
