Registration Open for SafeZone Competency Training
Registration is open for members of the SLU community interested in becoming SafeZone trained.
The Safe Zone Competency program strives to shed light on the systemic use of heteronormativity and cis-normativity on Saint Louis University’s campus while providing education surrounding building support systems for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies.
Through education, advocacy, and awareness of LGBTQ+ and ally issues, the program seeks to become a stepping stone to shifting the campus climate and provide a space to begin focusing on intersectional competencies. The introductory session for the SLU community focuses on fundamental terms, identities, and experiences related to the LGBTQIA+ community.
There are four trainings that must be completed prior to receiving a Safe Zone Certificate. There will be Phase 1 SafeZone Sessions on Wednesday, Sept. 27, and Thursday, Oct. 26, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Center for Global Citizenship Seminar Room 124.
