Safe Zone Update Training: Being an Effective Ally of Trans* Students

In order to establish and promote an accepting and inclusive environment for all students, the college needs to have knowledgeable and effective allies in place for LGBTQI+ students and employees. Increasingly, transgender and gender nonconforming students are coming out and enrolling in college. In addition, more and more faculty and college employees are coming out as transgender. In order to meet the needs of students and employees, it is important that colleges increase educational opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to around the needs of transgender people.

Participants in this training will gain a deeper understanding of contemporary terms and concepts related to gender and sexuality as they apply to the experiences of transgender and gender nonconforming college students. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and gain clarity about this complex topic and about how to be effective for students and colleagues who are transgender or gender nonconforming. The training will include activities where participants can practice different strategies for engaging with trans* students and others about issues related to gender diversity, so that they can develop a plan to be an effective ally. The training will create a safe space to explore questions and concerns about this contentious topic and will emphasize the need for each participant to decide on strategies to use that work for them and their role at the college.

Upon completion of this class, you will be able to:
- Increase your awareness, knowledge and skills in order to be an effective ally for trans*students
- Identify resources and referral options at MC and in the Mid-Atlantic LGBTQ community for transgender people
- Strengthen your network and community of allies across the College
