UNC Safe Zone Training

April 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Gillings School of Global Public Health and the Carolina Black Caucus have teamed up with the UNC-CH LGBTQ Center to provide Safe Zone training to Gillings faculty, staff and students.


The Safe Zone program is a symbol of this University’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. The purpose of Safe Zone is to create a visible network of allies for individuals who may be marginalized on the basis of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. All UNC faculty, staff and students are eligible to become Safe Zone allies. Training takes place several times a semester. Safe Zone training is a four (4) hour program open to all UNC-CH community members.

The training will:

• Raise awareness of issues faced by LGBTQ individuals
• Introduce participants to LGBTQ terminology
• Present strategies for being an ally to LGBTQ persons
• Present resources relevant to LGBTQ individuals

Please help spread the word and encourage your colleagues to attend!

Registration is available online.

Lunch will be available 15 minutes prior to the start of the event. Contact Angelica Figueroa, a.fig@unc.edu, if you have any dietary restrictions.
