Safer Zone Training Program
The Safer Zone Training Program, offered through Xavier’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion, aims to educate campus on advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community by promoting understanding, allyship, and inclusivity of the whole person. Safer Zone sessions must be taken in the following progression: Foundations, Society, Allyship. If you have previously taken a Safer Zone training at Xavier, please email Maria Merrill to confirm which session you should begin with.
Safer Zone: Foundations
The purpose of Safer Zone: Foundations is to educate the Xavier community on foundational identities, terms, and experiences related to the LGBTQ+ community. **Starting Fall 2020, Safer Zone: Foundations will be transitioning fully to a virtual, Canvas module! Complete the training at your own pace on your own time!
Safer Zone: Society
The purpose of Safer Zone: Society is to expand on foundational identities and terms to begin reflecting on our own perceptions of the LGBTQ+ community while identifying negative impacts of systemic systems of oppression.
*Safer Zone: Foundations is a prerequisite to this course*
Safer Zone: Allyship
The purpose of Safer Zone: Allyship is to create a network of supportive allies and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community across Xavier's campus.
*Safer Zone: Foundations and Safer Zone: Society are prerequisites to this course*
