Safe Zone Training

What Is Safe Zone?

Safe Zone is an ally training program for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer/Questioning community. This engaging and interactive training is presented by Babson College staff. Participation in this two-hour training will allow participants to receive a Safe Zone sticker to identify your space as a Safe Zone.

"I attended Safe Zone training not knowing what to expect, but I got out knowing so much more about it and glad I went. In my opinion everyone should go. It's doesn't matter if you're straight or not, everyone is welcome to attend, especially if you want to become a global leader."
- Lillian Reczek '16
