LGBTQ Safe Zone: Phase I

Safe Zone: Phase I introduces basic LGBTQ terms and concepts, helps participants develop an appreciation for the experiences of the LGBTQ people, and brings an overall awareness of LGBTQ issues. Participants will be encouraged to think about how they can create a more inclusive environment and will be prepared to provide resources to LGBTQ people.

Once participants complete Phase I, they can then attend Phase II where, upon completion, they may choose to become a recognized Safe Zone ally and receive a Safe Zone symbol to display in their work space.

Sign-up is available for employees through Employee Self-Service/My Training. To locate certificate courses search for “Safe Zone” and a list of the courses will appear. If you are a student or community member and would like to attend, please email at least 1 week before the date of the training.

Note: Participants are able to receive BUILD credit for attending. If you have attended an LGBTQ training in the past and would like credit, please email
