New York University's Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) offers workshops for the University community. The purpose of these workshops is to raise awareness among members of the NYU community about the University’s equal opportunity and affirmative action policies, procedures, and programs, as well as best practices for maintaining an inclusive and diverse working and learning environment. Workshops are accessible and interactive, and are designed to inform members of the NYU community of their rights, responsibilities, and resources. OEO workshops seek to be proactive, providing information about how to recognize and address issues when they arise, with the ultimate goal of creating an environment free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
