Gain new understanding of gender, gender identity, gender expression and the diverse range of sexual and affectional orientations. Acquire resource and referral information and practice communication skills for classroom or office discussions or unexpected disclosure. It's your choice about how visible and active to be as an ally after class.

Foster a welcoming academic environment for students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning identity, LGBTQ students often feel unsafe at school, resulting in reduced attendance to avoid risk, bullying, or bias. Empower students to cope with ignorance or discrimination, build community among peers, and focus on their studies.
Upon completion of this class, you will be able to:

Describe the foundation and goals of a Safe Zone program
Increase your awareness, knowledge and skills in order to be an effective ally for LGBTQ students
Identify resources and referral options at MC and in the Mid-Atlantic LGBTQ community
Strengthen your network and community of allies across the College.

This training will be held on:

Friday, November 17, 2017 from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. at Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus ST-302

Friday, December 01, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Rockville HU-009

This training fulfills the Diversity requirement.
