Safe Space Training

 The BCTC Alliance provided four Safe Space Workshops in the Fall of 2013 to provide education that encouraged faculty and staff to become allies and to provide a “safe” space for the LGBTQIA community. Attendees signed the following pledge and received a sticker indicating that they have completed the training and are a safe and inclusive space.

Safe Space Pledge

With my signature, I pledge to be an ally to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and ally (LGBTQIA) community at Bluegrass Community and Technical College.

I pledge that my space is a place where the LGBTQIA community can:

  • feel welcome and safe and is an environment that is accepting to all.
  • find assistance and help in identifying campus resources that support LGBTQIA members of the campus community.

With my signature, I pledge that I have completed the Safe Space Training at BCTC and will display my sticker prominently. I will be an ally and will work toward a more inclusive environment for the LBGTQIA community.

If I feel like at any time that I cannot serve in this role, I will remove my sticker and notify the BCTC Alliance.
