Ally Orientation & Introduction 2013
Safe Zone Training!
This LGBT Resource Center’s (LGBTRC) Ally Orientation and Introduction Session educates USC students, faculty and staff members about the campus resources for out, closeted and questioning students. Participants will learn appropriate resources to assist with their personal development that includes the coming out process and self-identification within the LGBT community. In addition to resources, participants will explore the anxieties, frustrations and hardships students deal with as they come to terms with their sexuality and/or gender identity. Participants will receive a safe zone sticker to display in their workplace identifying their Ally identity and affiliation with the LGBT community. Food and refreshments are provided.
After the session, participants will register with the LGBTRC to become an official Ally and participants will be invited to monthly Ally Discussions.
If you have already attended this introduction session and received your Ally sticker, then please do not attend this introduction session again. However, if there are colleagues from departments or schools who are not registered Allies with the LGBTRC, then please encourage them to attend.
