UAB HRM Training & Development is offering a workshop to train volunteers for the UAB Safe Zone program from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 4 in Medical Towers 419A.
The Safe Zone program is an established, visible network of trained faculty, staff and students who provide confidential support and reliable information to other faculty, staff and students regarding issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
After the training, participants who agree to be volunteers are identified by a decal with the Safe Zone symbol placed on their office doors. There is no time commitment other than the training.
For additional information on the Safe Zone program, contact e-mail Debbie Morgette at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Safe Zone Web site, students.uab.edu/student-life/show.asp?durki=61359.
