Safe Zone Gender Identity & Gender Expression

The purpose of Safe Zone Gender Identity & Gender Expression  is to make the University community a safer and more supportive place for all UNC-CH students, faculty, and staff members by creating a network of allies who have basic knowledge about transgender and intersex communities. Safe Zone training is a prerequisite for this training.

 

Requesting Safe Zone Trainings

If you are interested in having a Safe Zone training for your department, organization or group please contact us at least two months in advance to request a training. We ask that hosting departments and groups commit to the following:

  • Guarantee at least 25 participants. (People usually invite nearby offices or groups with similar purposes, if necessary.)
  • Handle publicity, registration, and participant reminders.
  • Attend a planning meeting with LGBTQ Center staff before scheduling the training. Meeting should run no longer than 30 minutes and can be in-person or via phone.
  • Reserve space and notify Center staff of the location and room amenities, such as computer, projector, speakers, etc as early as possible.
