Summer Safe Zone Sessions
Safe Zone Summit
Greetings from the Office of Intercultural Engagement!
I’d like to invite you to register for our Safe Zone Summit, happening on Tuesday, July 11th, 2017, from 9am-1:30pm in the Elliott University Center.
What is the Safe Zone Summit?
The Safe Zone Summit is a brand new initiative born from conversations within our LGBTQ+ Education Task Force, and is intended to provide an opportunity, outside of our standard Safe Zone Training, for faculty and staff to explore aspects of LGBTQ+ identity more deeply and meaningfully. Consider this an information-packed, build-your-own-adventure rest area on your journey of continuing education around gender, sexuality, and creating a more inclusive campus.
Who can attend?
The Safe Zone Summit is tailored to faculty and staff however, feel free to also invite graduate students that work in your department.
What will the day look like?
The Safe Zone Summit is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, July 11th, from 9am-1:30pm. The majority of the Summit will consist of three 45-minute time slots where attendees will be able to choose from two breakout topics that best fit their interest. We will close out our day with brief, guided group discussions. These groups are meant to provide space for processing what you’ve learned, and for considering how to best apply new strategies, skills, and knowledge in your daily work.
How do I register?
What else do I need to know?
Nothing! Simply mark your calendar for Tuesday, July 11th, 2017, from 9am-1:30pm, and expect an email from me at the beginning of July with more details. Until then, put on your learning pants and add another notch to that belt – because this is sure to be a day full of great information and important dialogue!
We appreciate your commitment to inclusion at UNC Greensboro, and look forward to engaging and learning alongside you during this important opportunity.
