Office of Diversity & Inclusion

As part of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI), the Women Center’s provides workshops to increase skills and capacity for our students, faculty, and staff to support women and promote gender equity. Here’s a glimpse of offerings from our ODI partner offices: 

Gatekeepers Workshops

In fall 2009, the Office of the Provost began to offer Gatekeepers Workshops in partnership with the Wake Forest Professional Development Center. A “gatekeeper” is any member of the Wake Forest community who represents the University through his or her interaction with students, faculty, staff, and other constituents.

Open to all Wake Forest alumni, faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students.  You must register to attend through the Professional Development Center, and attend session 1 to attend session 2.

Session 1: “Enhancing Our Community Through Inclusion”

Session 2: “Cross Cultural Conflict and Dialogue”

Session 3: “Contact Theory and Dialogue”

Session 4: “Unconscious Bias”


Safe Zone Training

The Safe Zone program is an in-depth, interactive presentation designed to educate Wake Forest faculty, staff, and students about the LGBTQ community. Anti-LGBTQ bias and prejudice affects all members of a community, and we all have the opportunity to work against it. Participants learn what it means to be an ally—a person who supports and stands up for the rights of LGBTQ people—as well as how to create a Safe Zone.

Allies who have completed the training program will be given a Safe Zone sticker, identifiable to the entire campus, which may be displayed on the ally’s door to designate it as a safe place for all members of the community.

Register for the program.
