The Safe Zone program is an in-depth, interactive presentation designed to educate Wake Forest faculty, staff, and students about the LGBTQ community. Anti-LGBTQ bias and prejudice affects all members of a community, and we all have the opportunity to work against it. Participants will learn terminology related to LGBTQ identities, discuss the experiences of LGBTQ students, develop skills for building LGBTQ inclusive environments, and leave with a plan of action for moving forward. Participants may choose to become members of the Wake Forest Safe Zone network followring the workshop.
These sessions are open to faculty, staff, community members, and graduate students. If you are an undergraduate student, or you are a graduate student who would prefer to be in a workshop with undergraduate students, please register for a student workshop.
The Safe Zone workshop fulfills a required community course for the CORE certification.
