Safe Zone Advanced Workshop offered Wednesday, July 15

Submitted by Brandon Haddock


Safe Zone at K-State continues to offer introductory, advanced workshops and educational series during the summer break.

The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Training to take the Safe Zone Advanced Workshop on Transgender Language and Competency from 1-3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15, via Zoom.

For this workshop, Safe Zone has paired up with its partners in the LGBT Resource Center and the Gender Collective. This workshop is offered by doctoral candidate Sam Sharpe from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, July 15, via Zoom. These workshops are typically scheduled for two hours to give participants the opportunity for questions and discussion. The time frame is to ensure that everything is covered and everyone's questions are answered.

Register for the July 15 SafeZone Advance Training on Transgender Competency and Language.

Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. Safe Zone was created to help those facing sexual orientation discrimination. Revitalization of the initiative in 2002 created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving Safe Zone effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Allies become educated to help those coming from a variety of backgrounds and identities with needs concerning exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns or sexual violence.
