Safe Zone to host advanced workshop 'Trans Language and Trans Competence'
Safe Zone, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites you to participate in the Safe Zone Advanced Workshop, "Trans Language and Trans Competence" from 9-10:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 30, via Zoom.
The workshop will cover how to use and understand basic terminology surrounding gender identity and transgender and nonbinary individuals. Participants will learn how to incorporate trans competent practices into professional and interpersonal interactions and will be able to ask any questions about transgender inclusion and terminology.
Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. The architects of Safe Zone created educational opportunities to teach about discrimination around sexual orientation and other minoritized identities. The expanded Safe Zone created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Safe Zone Allies acknowledge a variety of backgrounds and identities while teaching about navigating exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ-related concerns, and sexual violence.
