Submitted by Karsen Davis

The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Training in the past three years to take the Safe Zone Advanced Training on Sexuality and Gender Identity Introduction from 9-11 a.m. April 8 via zoom. 

Register for the April 8 Safe Zone Advance Training on Sexuality and Gender Identity Introduction.

For this training, Safe Zone has paired up with its partners in the LGBT Resource Center to offer an advanced training for faculty, staff, student and community members who wish to learn more about sexuality and gender identities. The link will be sent out to everyone registered for the Safe Zone event the night before the event.

In addition, there also is a Safe Zone Advanced Training over Trans Language and Trans Competency offered from 3-5 p.m. April 9 also via Zoom. Although this training is blocked off for two hours, it is not intended to last this long. The time frame is to ensure that everything is covered and everyone's questions are answered. 

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.
