Safe Space Training

Primary tabs

Safe Space is Georgia Tech’s LGBTQIA ally training program for faculty, staff, affiliates, graduate students, and postdocs. Each training lasts 4 hours. By the end of the Safe Space training, participants will:

  • Feel more confident using LGBTQIA-inclusive terminology
  • Be aware of how heterosexist and cissexist privilege perpetuate LGBTQIA oppression and discrimination
  • Understand the coming out process and know how to provide appropriate support to someone who comes out to them
  • Understand the role of allies in LGBTQIA communities and social justice movements
  • Possess skills to advocate for LGBTQIA communities and to combat homophobia, transphobia, heterosexism, and cissexism on campus and beyond
  • Be familiar with laws and policies that impact the LGBTQIA community
  • Know what resources exist on and off campus for LGBTQIA students, faculty, and staff

Please note: This training will include some discussion of sensitive topics, including anti-LGBTQIA bias and mental health concerns, including some brief mentions of suicide and self-harm. Please use your judgment and your knowledge of your own boundaries and self-care needs when deciding whether to register.

Can make this session? There will be another opportunity to take this training on Wednesday, November 9 from 12:30-4:30 p.m. 

If you are an undergraduate student please sign up for one of our Safe Space: Peer Education sessions instead. To explore those options and the many other trainings and programs offered by the LGBTQIA Resource Center, visit their website.
