Galerstein Gender Center - SAFE ZONE Ally Training
Friday, Oct 19
10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Location: Galaxy Rooms

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 his/her own attitudes, behaviors, and values, and to challenge others to do the same

Appreciate and value the contributions of LGBT+ people

 

Currently, the Galerstein Gender Center holds two Ally Trainings per semester, which 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.
