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.
The Safe Zone workshop fulfills a required community course for the CORE certification.
All members of the WFU 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 workshops 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 inconveneince.
