Safe Zone Summit at UNCG

The UNCG Office of Intercultural Engagement invites you to register for its Safe Zone Summit, on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. 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 11, 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?

That part is easy! Fill our our Safe Zone Summit Registration Form before Friday, June 23, 2017.

What else do I need to know?

Nothing. Simply mark your calendar for Tuesday, July 11, 2017, from 9 am-1:30 pm, and expect an email at the beginning of July with more details.

We appreciate your commitment to inclusion at UNC Greensboro, and look forward to engaging and learning alongside you during this important opportunity.
