Safe Zone Advocate Training

2 credits


Full course description

This voluntary course is for all FIU part-time and full-time faculty and staff, including student staff. Participants will earn professional development credit for taking the initiative to learn about LGBTQIA+ identities, genders and sexualities, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege. LGBTQIA+ people sometimes question whether they will feel safe, welcomed, or supported in new environments. The course is completed via 2-hour Zoom Training with a group of learners and a facilitator. Participants then gain access to a post-training assessment to complete the training. Those who complete the Safe Zone curriculum receive Safe Zone stickers and signature icons which, when displayed, communicate to others a commitment to making and creating inclusive environments for LGBTQIA+ peoples. Participants will optionally be listed on the website, indicating their completion of the training and their commitment as advocates.
