Fall 2022 Safe Space Training for Penn Engineering Faculty & Staff – Day 1

October 6 at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The School of Engineering and Applied Science has partnered with the university’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Center to offer Safe Space Training for interested faculty and staff on Thursday, October 6th from 2pm-4pm and Friday, October 7th  from 10am-12pm in the Forman Active Learning Classroom (217 Towne).

 Attendance at both sessions is required to complete the training in full.

This four-hour training program is designed to educate faculty and staff on how to better support LGBTQ+ individuals on our campus and in our classrooms. Those who participate will then be eligible to display a Safe Space sticker in their office, indicating their active roles in promoting an accepting environment for all, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. The Safe Space Program has been shown to be an effective tool in helping LGBTQ+ students feel safe and included in the campus community.

To attend the workshops, please register by September 29th using the website link below.    

Brunch will be provided during the training session on Friday morning, and there is space for up to 40 individuals.  If there is sufficient interest, additional training sessions will be scheduled for later in the year. Please contact Emily Delany at eedelany@seas.upenn.edu with any additional questions.
