SAFE-ZONE TRAININGS HOSTED BY CENTER FOR GENDER AND SEXUAL DIVERSITY
The Center for Gender and Sexual Diversity (formerly known as the LGBTQA+ Resource Center) is hosting Safe Zone trainings for the EIU community (including staff and students) to participate in. The Safe Zone trainings are part of the Safe Zone Project, which was created to address the concerns of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual, pansexual and ally community at EIU and the surrounding area. The Safe Zone Project is a way to reach out to these students and welcome them in all areas of the EIU community. Safe Zones are areas on and around campus where supportive people provide information and work toward the elimination of myths, misconceptions, and stereotypes.

This semester, the Center for Gender and Sexual Diversity is offering a variety of Safe Zone trainings including Safe Zone Core, Beyond Bystander (Ally/Advocate Training), Bisexual/Pansexual, Trans 101, LGBTQA+ History, and Asexual. Click here to to sign up for a specific training you are interested in.
