Safe Space

 

Are you interested in helping us make UW-Eau Claire inclusive, welcoming, and safe for all Blugolds, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity/expression? Whether you already consider yourself an Ally to the LGBTQIA+ community or are entering into the conversation for the very first time, Safe Space Training is for you! We offer this training to all university departments, offices, student organizations, and even communities throughout the Chippewa Valley. If you sign up for a session, this is what you can expect:

  • A 2-hour training session led by two Safe Space trainers.
  • Each training session averages between 8-20 participants, as we find discussion is most useful within that range. That said, group sizes do vary; we are flexible! So, let us know what you have in mind and we'll work with you.
  • Safe Space Training covers quite a bit of ground, and while each session varies depending on the lived experiences of those in attendance, some of the terms/issues we will discuss are as follows:

    • LGBTQIA+ (What do the letters in this acronym represent???)
    • Pronouns
    • Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Sexual Orientation, Gender Roles
    • Erasure
    • Heteronormativity
    • The Queer legal landscape
    • Ally
    • Resources (UW-Eau Claire, Chippewa Valley, Nationwide)
