Safe Zone Ally Training workshops are interactive, research-informed workshops that seek to foster a more inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ individuals in STEM, through building participant knowledge and skills and creating a visible network of allies. Faculty, students, administrators, staff, and other professionals are welcome to participate in these workshops. 

This Level 2 Safe Zone online workshop describes the concepts and implications of privilege and bias, discusses the climate for LGBTQ+ individuals in STEM and ways that allies can support LGBTQ+ students and colleagues, and explores techniques for creating inclusive classroom environments.

ASEE Safe Zone Ally Training workshops are supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Grant Nos. EEC-1539140 and EEC-1748499. 

This webinar is presented in partnership with ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) and as part of AIChE's Diversity & Inclusion initiative, which includes an initiative for LGBTQ+ Engineers and their allies
