This workshop is designed to educate business owners about LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) communities. Business owners who complete the training will receive an official sticker to display in their windows designating them as an LGBTQ+ Safe Zone and be listed on the Westminster Pride website.
Learning outcomes include awareness of LGBTQ+ terminology, the coming out process, and beginner level strategies to being a supportive ally of the LGBTQ+ community. The Safe Zone Training's overall objective is for Safe Zone Allies to utilize their knowledge and skills to foster a supportive and safe atmosphere for LGBTQ+ community members.
As a result of the Safe Zone Program, Safe Zone training participants will become part of an identifiable, community-wide network of Safe Zone Allies.
