Safe Zone is a campus wide program designed to visibly identify students, staff, and faculty who support the LGBTQ population, understand some of the issues facing LGBTQ individuals, and are aware of the various LGBTQ resources. Safe Zone prepares individuals to create an environment in which all people are free to thrive academically, professionally and personally. With Safe Zone certified individuals found across campus, students can seek providers of safe space and feel reassurance that the experiences they are having are not compromised by their LGBTQ identity.
Individuals join the Safe Zone network through attending a Safe Zone workshop, which is an in-depth, interactive presentation designed to educate Wake Forest faculty, staff, and students about the LGBTQ community and how to build inclusive communities. Individuals who complete the training will have the opportunity to display a Safe Zone sticker, identifying them as a member of the Safe Zone network.
