Safer Spaces Training provides a common language to help initiate discussions about inclusivity and (hopefully!) start leaders and the organization on the road to creating a culture where everyone feels like they belong. It’s a spark.

“Safer Spaces training should be a must of HR Departments everywhere. While most people are familiar with the LGBTQ+ community, Safer Spaces brings a deeper understanding to who is in this community, and how we can create a more inclusive space in our workplace. Safer Spaces creates a safe and respectful space within the training session for participants to ask questions; he is aware that most people have questions about this community, and he answers respectfully and honestly. As HR is the foundation of an employee’s experience in the Corporation, it is fundamental that HR employees take this training to understand the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community, the history of this community and the strong biases that exist against this community in workplaces. As a result, we can work towards making sure this community is valued in the workplace and included in having a great employee experience.”

“Understanding the world of gender diversity can be confusing, especially if all the people you know and interact with on a daily basis identify with the historically stereotypical gender definitions. On top of that, we often worry that even asking a question in the “wrong” way it may be taken as offensive or insensitive.
Safer Spaces is very good at creating a safe space to learn, understand, and ask questions without judgement, which allows participants to move into a more informed and sensitive way of being and interacting with people who are different than they are…an important step towards making this world more accepting and empathic.”

“As an office administrator, I never realized that I could make a trans person feel comfortable just by introducing myself with my pronouns.
Thank you for teaching me this technique. What a wonderful training!!!”
