SAFE ZONE Ally Training

SAFE ZONE Virtual Training in Spring 2022!

SAFE Zone

SAFE ZONE is a national concept in which safe spaces are identified and marked with a symbol unique to each campus. By displaying the SAFE ZONE logo on a department door, office, or desk, Allies show that they value a diverse campus community, are willing to foster a safe place for others, and are committed to offer support, resources, and guidance.

You can become a SAFE ZONE Ally by attending Ally Training. Ally Training provides a venue for LGBT+ people, Allies, and participants to express concerns, ask questions, and learn about issues affecting the LGBT+ campus and surrounding community. After completion of the training, participants will receive a certificate, SAFE ZONE logo, resources, and will be equipped with the tools necessary to:

 

  • Respond appropriately
  • Know resources and/or where to find them
  • Show support and safeguard the rights of LGBT+ people
  • Examine your own attitudes, behaviors, and values, and to challenge others to do the same
  • Appreciate and value the contributions of LGBT+ people

The Galerstein Gender Center provides a venue for LGBT+ people, Allies and participants to express concerns, ask questions, and learn about issues affecting the LGBT+ campus and surrounding community. For more information on the next Ally Training session, email [email protected].
