This session will certify participants to develop and maintain an educational environment that is supportive of students, staff, and faculty members that are part of the LGBTQ+ community. Attendees will be trained to increase knowledge, support, and awareness around issues of sex, gender, and sexuality based diversity. No prior experience with LGBTQ+ is required or expected. Attendees will learn basic terminology and best practices for creating and sustaining inclusivity in classrooms and work spaces. Safe Zone trainings are confidential spaces to learn, grow, and share.
This workshop will be lead by Dina Giovanelli (Anothropology, History, Political Science, Sociology)
