Event description

Description

The Safe Space workshop is an innovative, dynamic, hands-on approach to creating safe spaces for all; focusing specifically on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex & Asexual (LGBTQ+) community.

This workshop is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

From the classroom bully to the unintentional exclusion by use of certain language, LGBTQ+ people frequently find themselves excluded and uncomfortable in a variety of settings. This workshop aims to reduce the often unwelcoming and even hostile environments in which LGBTQ+ people navigate in their daily lives.

Workshop participants will discuss the differences between sexual orientation, gender identify, gender expression and biological sex. Participants will also discuss LGBTQ+-inclusive terminology and pronouns, best practices, and explore their role and responsibility in creating a more welcoming environment at work, school, and in our communities. All attendees will leave the workshop with greater understanding and workable solutions for promoting Safe Spaces of Respect, Acceptance, and Support for all. If you are looking to bring this workshop to your organization, this is a great opportunity to preview the workshop and see it in action!

Event will be held in the Multipurpose room of the Kenhill Center. Refreshments will be in Room 124 of the Kenhill Center.

3.5 hours of CEUs are available for this workshop from the Salisbury University Center for Extended & Lifelong Learning for just $15 per person. If you are interested in receiving CEUs, please got to this link for more info and to sign up:
