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 the opportunity and responsibility 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 following the workshop.
The Safe Zone workshop fulfills a required community course for the CORE certification.
Safe Zone workshops will not be offered in fall 2019 as we conduct a program review and explore possibilities for new content and delivery that align with promising practices in this work. Please look out for new offerings in spring 2020.
All members of the WFU community and greater community are welcome and encouraged to register for an upcoming Safe Zone workshop. Please note: we require a minimum number of registrants in order to offer the workshop due to the highly interactive learning environment. There is a chance the workshop you register for will not be offered, and we will ask you to register for the next available workshop that fits your schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience.
