Janette and I put together a “Safe Zone” workshop for Brooks School faculty and staff last year. Working with her has been a joy. We are thrilled to be in a community that supports GSA. Often, we sit around aiming to teach leadership skills to our GSA leaders in a way that allows them to lead our community. We are conducting this workshops tomorrow; it addresses LGBTQ student experiences, the importance of inclusive language, how to be a supportive ally, as well as how to respond when a student comes out. The workshop seeks to ensure that community members who display the new “Safe Zone” decal are prepared to assist a student who has made the decision to share their sexual or gender identity. Check out the decal above.
