Moving Beyond Safe Zones
Presenter: Instructional Designer with ansrsource’s Inclusion Institute™ and an Adjunct Faculty member at Central Michigan University

This program is strategically designed to be interactive and participatory in nature. This research-based session will cover ways to be inclusive and supportive of underrepresented students. While the focus will be on LGBTQIA+ students, emphasis will be added on the impact of creating these spaces for all underrepresented students. The presenter shares their experience of 20+ years of DEI work noting that we cannot truly create safe spaces. We can want to be safe people, but we can never guarantee to another human being that we will not cause unintentional harm. This session will help those committed to creating safe spaces recognize that vulnerability necessary to move beyond the notion of creating safe spaces to creating inclusive and equitable spaces.
