S.A.F.E. Zone, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites you to participate in the S.A.F.E. Zone Advanced Workshop "Trans Language and Trans Competence" from 10-11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, 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.

Register for the Feb. 24 Advanced S.A.F.E. Zone Workshop.

S.A.F.E. Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. The architects of S.A.F.E. Zone created educational opportunities to teach about discrimination around sexual orientation and other minoritized identities. The expanded S.A.F.E. Zone created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. S.A.F.E. 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.
