Safe Zone Advanced Workshop: Culture Deconstructed and Implicit Bias
The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Workshop to take the Safe Zone Advanced Workshop: Culture Deconstructed and Implicit Bias from 10-11:30 a.m. Friday, March 5, via Zoom.
In this workshop, we explore how we can better understand our own cultures better to understand cultures different from our own. We learn to understand better how our biases set us up for behaviors that divide human systems.
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.
