Safe Zone LGBT Allies

'Safe Zone' is a program designed to increase the overall campus community's understanding of and capacity to address issues faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) persons. Effective implementation of Safe Zone programs requires the identification, training, and 'visibility' of institutional allies advocating for the LGBT community. The Safe Zone LGBT Ally Training was specifically designed for Weill Cornell Medicine and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center community members to acquire the knowledge and skills to serve as an 'Ally'.

The LGBT Safe Zone Ally training is available online and may be accessed by any Weill Cornell Medicine staff member or clinician.
