Safe Zone Training

The LGBTQ Resource Center currently offers two Safe Zone trainings.

The first is our LGBTQ 101 training, which covers how to be an ally, basic terminology, and micro-agressions. This training lasts and hour and a half and serves as a base training any and all who wish to learn more.
We can offer this training as a basic workshop, a class presentation, etc.
It also serves as the required pre-cursor to our certifying Safe Zone Training.

The Safe Zone training is a four hour training that delves further into how to be an ally, terminology, and different types of hate, negativity, and -phobias. Individuals who complete a Safe Zone training will be able to mark their offices or work spaces with a Safe Zone sticker, showing students that these locations are safe spaces for them. Doing so can also provide a greater sense of safety and support among LGBTQ individuals on campus.

Both trainings are designed to increase the overall campus community’s understanding and awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning issues. Participants in the trainings will gain a better understanding of homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, and LGBT issues on UNM’s campus.

Open versions of both trainings are offered throughout the semester and will be announced in our Weekly Newsletter, which is sent out every Monday via Listserv. If your department, class, or organization would like to request a specialized Safe Zone training, please contact our office at 277-5428 or
