Safe Zone Training
One event on November 16, 2021 at 1:00 pm
This training qualifies for 4 hours of credit toward the Gillings School’s annual inclusive excellence training requirement for faculty and staff.
The Safe Zone program is designed to create a network of visible allies to people who identify as part of the LGBTIQA+ campus community. These trainings provide information and resources related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Safe Zone trainees develop:
- A deeper awareness of personal ideas, stereotypes, and assumptions related to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and asexual (LGBTIQA) individuals
- An increased comfort level in addressing concepts and language regarding LGBTIQA communities with the university community and with individuals
- An increased awareness of services on campus that support LGBTIQA and allied individuals
- A network of community and campus staff, faculty, and students to support people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions on campus.
Training Dates: October 14th 10:00am to 2:00pm (Register by October 12th)
November 16th 1:00pm to 5:00pm (Register by November 14th)
