The Safe Space Program and the Safe Space logo are trademarked by EQUAL! at Alcatel-Lucent.

The Safe Space program is designed to provide a way to send the message that the environment is supportive of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered associates, and that hostility toward them will not be tolerated! Managers and employees are encouraged to display the Safe Space magnet to let others know they support full participation of all members of the workplace, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, characteristics, or expression.

Come to the presentation to learn more about NCOD and the Safe Space Program.
