EVC's Diversity & Inclusion Cabinet Meeting, 4/7 - RECORDING AVAILABLE

The quarterly meeting of the EVC's Diversity and Inclusion Cabinet meeting is was held at 7:30–8:30 a.m., Wahl Hall East Auditorium. Agenda is posted here.  A recording of the meeting is also available.

Safe Zone Training opportunity, 4/17 - TODAY!

KU Medical Center is committed to a diverse and inclusive community in many ways. You can contribute to building this inclusive learning environment by joining in the Safe Zone program.
The Office of Student Life has created an official Safe Zone training for our campus. This training will provide education around the issues of sexual orientation and gender identity and will be conducted throughout the year to help develop a safety net for students, faculty and staff struggling with these issues. We envision the program as a visible network of allies who support each other and support individual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We hope to build a climate where everyone feels safe and accepted.

The first Safe Zone training for the spring semester will be 1:30–4 p.m., Friday, April 17. Training will discuss respectful terminology, transgender concerns and other topics that will help you become a better ally. It is expected when people see a person who has displayed the Safe Zone logo, they know this person has self-identified as a supporter and advocate of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. They can expect this person to respect their confidentiality, provide them with resources and listen.
Sign up now for the April 17 training. Space is limited to 25 so if you can't make it this semester, look for more training opportunities. Contact Tori Strobel in the Office of Student Life with questions.
