NYU’s commitment to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity led to the creation of the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation. As part of the Office of the President, the Office of Global Inclusion provides expert consultation, resources, and innovative strategies to help guide the University—and its uniquely global and diverse student, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni communities—toward a more inclusive future.

New Biden Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity Revokes Trump Executive Order 13950 (Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping)

January 25, 2021

President Biden, on his first day in office, issued the new Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The order contains various elements, including revocation of the Trump Administration's Executive Order 13950 on Race and Sex Stereotyping that outlined requirements with respect to certain workplace trainings for federal, contractors, and their employees.  

We, in OGI, are beyond pleased with this development as potential barriers or hurdles in providing essential and ongoing DEI learning opportunities to the NYU community have been removed. Over the next weeks, we will be working with NYU Leadership to update our guidance related to the revoked executive order and meeting with Global Inclusion Officers to recalibrate. At NYU, we remain steadfast in our advocacy for our research, education, learning, pedagogical, and co-curricular efforts that advance DEI and access efforts and will continue in the University’s efforts to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all members of our global communities.

NYU Community,

As 2020 closes, we in OGI share our deepest thanks and appreciation for your partnership as we have confronted such unprecedented and painful times together.

text-wish you a wonderful break & happy 2021!

Learning from the challenges 2020 has brought, we have continued to advance DEI excellence at NYU and beyond in partnership and collaboration.

From NYU BeTogether, to ongoing educational opportunities, to action planning and implementation; we will begin 2021 continuing to innovate, act, and transform—together. During the break, please consider checking out our 2020 program recordings (review a recap of selected programs), and submitting nominations for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Faculty Award (due Jan. 5) and the Patricia M. Carey Changemaker Award (due Jan. 11) ahead of NYU MLK Week 2021.

We hope that you take time to rest, relax, and recharge over the break. Thank you again! Please continue to take good care.

In solidarity,

Lisa Coleman's Signature
