Ally Development is a professional development workshop that provides participants with the knowledge and skills to actively support and create a more inclusive campus climate for LGBT+ people. Ally Development is the second of two Safe Space trainings and builds on the foundational knowledge about LGBT+ communities and identities covered in Safe Space, Part I: LGBT 101. In this workshop participants will learn: a) What it means to be an ally b) How they can be an ally to LGBT+ campus community members and c) How everyone is impacted by privilege and systemic marginalization associated with sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. After completing Ally Development, participants will receive a Safe Space card to display in their office space. This card signals that they are a safe contact for LGBT+ students, faculty, staff, and allies to share fully of their identities and be appreciated for who they are. It also signals their ability to serve as a resource for LGBT+ campus community members and their allies. Feel free to bring your lunch!
