The Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation provides NYU community members with a number of in-person development and training opportunities to help strengthen their capacity for social and cultural equity.

Intro to NYU LGBTQ+

In this one hour session, you receive a brief overview of LGBTQ+ terms and concepts and are introduced to ways in which your group can bolster their support of LGBTQ+ communities.

Facilitation 101

This program explores the skills that are essential for group facilitation in a social justice context. During the two-hour training session, you examine the roles and responsibilities of a group facilitator, strategies for group engagement, and approaches to creating inclusive spaces that afford all participants a constructive learning space.

Navigating Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion

You have the chance to identify and unpack your personal experiences with challenges that many people face through conversations about diversity-related topics. You will examine and learn how to implement strategies to help you further investigate your role in these types of conversations.

Zone Trainings

Zone trainings foster an inclusive, empathetic, informed, and safer NYU, one training at a time. These interactive group sessions provide NYU community members with the knowledge and tools to explore concepts related to identity, diversity, and community.


Disability Zone

Explore the intersections of disability status and justice through the critical analysis of language and policy, the works of disability justice activists, and group discussion. During this three-hour session, NYU community members reflect on their practices, gain the tools to actively practice solidarity with people with disabilities, and learn how to create more accessible environments for these same people.

Justice Zone

Develop an understanding of frequently used concepts—such as diversity, equity, and social justice—through the lens of race and racism. Throughout this two-hour session, participants reflect on their own identities and challenge their daily practices to begin a journey toward critical consciousness.

Safe Zone

This three-hour session provides foundational knowledge about LGBTQ+ communities, an understanding of some of the issues these communities face, and an awareness of various LGBTQ+ resources at NYU and beyond.

UndocuZone (formerly DREAM Zone)

This program introduces NYU community members to issues and challenges the undocumented community faces by utilizing global concepts and terminology, historical information, and policies and procedures that focus on individuals in this community.
