Safe Zone Training Set

ALL UIC staff are invited to participate in Safe Zone training from the Gender & Sexuality Center.

SAFE ZONE training provides factual information and terminology related to topics of sexual and gender identity; identifies issues and policies that affect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals; introduces strategies for creating inclusive environments; provides guidance for making appropriate referrals; and raises awareness of the negative impact of homophobia and sexism on all people.

ALL UIC staff are encouraged to attend this University-sanctioned training. Release time is generally granted according to the Attendance at University Events policy.

ALL SAFE Zone trainings are open to everyone and reflect UIC’s attention to multiple and intersecting identities. The trainings were developed in partnership with campus partners.
