Join The Nonprofit Partnership on Tuesday, July 30th to learn about the LGBTQ+ community and become Safe Zone trained.

Safe Zone Trainings are opportunities to learn about LGBTQ+ identities, gender and sexuality, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege. This voluntary training will consist of a three-hour session. Following each training, participants will receive a take-home resource guide and the updated Safe Zone training sticker, a representation of completing the training and communicating to others that they are open to talking about and being supportive of the LGBTQ+ community. This session is appropriate for any nonprofit professional looking to elevate their knowledge through opportunities to learn about LGBTQ+ community.

Learning Objectives:
- Participants will reflect on how their understanding of LGBTQ people and identity has changed over their lifetime.
- Participants will be able to clarify questions that they have about foundational LGBTQ vocabulary.
- Participants will have a clearer understanding of the importance of language in relation to creating affirming environments LGBTQ individuals.
- To provide an opportunity for participants to empathetically connect and reflect on the experience of having (or not having) privilege.
- Provide an opportunity for all participants to ask the questions they are most curious about and have them answered.
- An opportunity to generate scenarios for the activities later in the training.

This session is open to members of The Nonprofit Partnership and has limited capacity. Light lunch will be provided.

The Nonprofit Partnership's offices at The Susan Hirt Hagen Center for Transformational Philanthropy are open Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM.
