The District is committed to educating our students, employees, and community members about proactive steps they can take to mitigate the detrimental impacts of rape, sexual assault, and sexual misconduct. We offer sexual violence awareness and prevention programming year-round, as well as training for employees and students. For information on events like Clothesline Project, Consent Fair, Denim Day, Take Back the Night, and on-campus training opportunities, please check the Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Compliance Events (OEIC) page, or contact the Title IX Coordinator for your site.
The District offers Title IX training to all employees through the District Office of Human Resources, in conjunction with the District Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Compliance. Additionally, the campus Title IX Coordinators may provide training upon request. If you have a group of faculty, staff, or students who would like to request a training, please feel free to contact one of the District or Campus Title IX Coordinators or Sacha Moore, District Coordinator of Equity, Inclusion, and Compliance, at email@example.com or (714) 892-7711 ext. 51119. We will be happy to coordinate training with you.
Additionally, the Colleges offer SafeZone training for both students and employees. In this training, participants expand their cultural competence and discover strategies for promoting and facilitating LGBTQ-inclusive environments. The training is intended for all interested parties. Whether you identify as heterosexual, LGBTQIA+, transgender, cisgender, ally, or aspiring ally, if you want to know more about creating accepting, safe spaces wherever you go, you are welcome here!
Each of the Colleges has certified SafeZone trainers on staff, including each of the campus Title IX Coordinators. Please be on the lookout for scheduled trainings on campus and through OEIC.
Starting Spring 2018, the Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Compliance (OEIC) is also offering SAIL (Supporting Actively Inclusive Leaders) Training. This program provides insight into how participants can create an inclusive campus community where faculty, staff, and students take proactive steps to address the needs of people from historically marginalized and disenfranchised identity groups and provide comprehensive support to ensure that all community members are successful in their academic and professional pursuits. Additionally, SAIL empowers all of us to be active bystanders in our community in an effort to dismantle institutional and social systems of oppression and eliminate bias, prejudice, and discrimination from our campuses. SAIL believes that even the smallest action can make a tremendous impact in the lives of our students and colleagues. Join us, and set SAIL!
SAIL Training is application-based, and CCCD employees are eligible for consideration when they have completed SafeZone Training or SafeZone Train-the-Trainer within the past three years.
For additional information on SAIL Training, please contact Sacha Moore, District Coordinator of Equity, Inclusion, and Compliance, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
