Safe Zone - I respect LGBTQA individuals.

The Offices of Diversity and Inclusion, Human Resources and Counseling and Testing Center has created the Safe Zone LGBTQ Training that is a dynamic, interactive session that includes activities and discussions arround:

  • Inclusive language
  • The process of coming out
  • The power of the straight ally
  • Understanding sexual identity
  • How to respond to homophobic incidents
  • Resources and much more!

The goal of this training is to educate as well as create and sustain a welcoming and inclusive environment for the LGBTQ campus community. This training establishes an identifiable network of supportive people who can provide support, information and a safe place for LGBTQ persons within the Wichita State community. By attending this training, individuals are committed to being a Safe Zone Ally in which bigotry and discrimination, specifically regarding LGBTQ persons, are not tolerated.
