Registration Deadline Extended! UNCG's 2nd Annual Safe Zone Summit

Greetings from the Office of Intercultural Engagement!

It's time to register for this summer's 2nd annual Safe Zone Summit, happening on Tuesday, July 31st, 2018, from 10am-4:30pm in the Elliott University Center! Simply fill our our Safe Zone Summit Registration Form before Wednesday, July 25th, 2018. Registration is free for UNC Greensboro employees, and only $25 for attendees from other campuses.

What is the Safe Zone Summit?

The Safe Zone Summit is intended to provide an opportunity, outside of our standard Safe Zone Training for faculty and staff to explore aspects of LGBTQ+ identity more deeply and meaningfully. Consider this an information-packed, build-your-own-adventure rest area on your journey of continuing education around gender, sexuality, and creating more inclusive campuses.

Who can attend?

The Safe Zone Summit is tailored to faculty and staff however, feel free to also invite graduate students that work in your department. This year, we are extending our invitation to colleagues at nearby institutions for a smallregistration fee of $25.

What will the day look like?

The Safe Zone Summit will take place on Tuesday, July 31st, 2018, from 10am-4:30pm . The majority of the Summit will consist of breakout presentations on a variety of topics, allowing attendees to craft their own experience.

For those wanting to review fundamental concepts around gender and sexuality in preparation for The Summit, we will be hosting a pre-conference session that morning, beginning at 8:30am.

We will close out our day with brief, guided group discussions. These groups are meant to provide space for processing what you've learned, and for considering how to best apply new strategies, skills, and knowledge in your daily work alongside colleagues from different departments and campuses.

I've attached the schedule so you can begin perusing our available sessions.

What else do I need to know?

Nothing! Simply mark your calendar for Tuesday, July 31st, 2018, and expect an email from me in early July with more details. Until then, put on your learning pants and add another notch to that belt - because this is sure to be a day full of great information and important dialogue! 

We appreciate your commitment to inclusion, and look forward to engaging and learning alongside you during this important opportunity.

Please reach out with questions!
