Safe Zone Training is an educational workshop to help members of the UWG community learn more about LGBTQ+ individuals and how to support them through allyship.

Safe Zone Training Information

Safe Zone has been educating the UWG community in several formats since 2004. In its current iteration, Safe Zone is a multi-level training program about LGBTQ+ identities. 

  1. The introductory workshop is a three-hour training to understand the basics about gender, sexuality, and sexual orientation. 
  2. The 2.0 workshop is an expansive look at the history and background of LGBTQ+ culture and communities.
  3. Trans 101 is a third workshop that explores trans identities, experiences, and needs, and the ways in which we can best support trans individuals and community.

Participants must complete the introductory course to enroll in 2.0 or Trans 101, and will receive updates including available dates via email.
