Gender & Sexuality Programs, through the Office of Intercultural Development, is excited to announce an expanded and revamped Safe Zone program launching this Spring semester.
Safe Zone trainings are opportunities to learn about LGBTQIA+ identities, gender and sexuality, allyship, prejudice, assumptions, and privilege. They are great opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to explore, learn, and build connections across communities of diverse experiences.
Safe Zone training comprises four 50-minute sessions:
1. Introduction to Safe Zone & Understanding Sexual Orientation – A look into Gay, Lesbian, Asexual, and Bisexual+ identities
2. Exploring Gender Identity – A focus on sex and gender and a look into Transgender, Nonbinary, Intersex, and Genderqueer identities
3. Allyship & Inclusion – Putting knowledge into practice
4. Action Planning – Working directly with teams on implementing a program or working towards change within the group
To request Safe Zone training for yourself or your group (i.e. student organization, athletic team, office or department, etc.) please complete the request form.
