Maverick Ally Workshop

Maverick Ally Workshop(previously known as Safe Zone Ally Training) aims to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning individuals and their allies by providing an avenue through which any member of UT Arlington can show their support.

Participants in Maverick Ally/Safe Zone Workshop will learn about heterosexual privilege, campus and community resources, and how to be supportive to diverse sexuality and gender identities, which include but are not limited to, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, queer, asexual and pansexual community. At the conclusion of the training, participants will receive a Maverick Ally/Safe Zone decal, and have the option to display it as a signal to the campus community, and especially LGBTQA+ individuals, that they maintain a safe and affirming environment.  After completion of the training, participants will be equipped with the tools necessary to:

  • Respond in an appropriate, affirming and supportive manner to LGBTQA+ individuals
  • Know on and off campus resources, and/or where to find them
  • Examine one’s own attitudes, behaviors, and values, and challenge others to do the same
