SAFEZONE TRAINING

This training was created to develop, enhance and maintain environments in workplaces, schools and other social settings that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) individuals, as well as straight, cisgender people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion.

A safe zone or a safe space is a place where all people feel safe, welcome and included.  It may be a room, a car, or an entire college campus.  The Gay Alliance SafeZone program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals and address the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ peers, family members, friends, coworkers and for themselves. Creating safe zones or safe spaces is a proactive step that schools, agencies and corporations can take to create welcoming, inclusive spaces so that all people are empowered to reach their full potential. (Gay Alliance – http://www.gayalliance.org/programs/education-safezone/safezone-programs/).

Safe Zone Training must be booked in advance.  To schedule a Safe Zone training, please call (406) 290 7338, (406) 453 0589, or send an email to gflgbtq@gmail.com
