Krystal McLeod
BACK
Assistant Manager, Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives, Office of Global Programs, New York University
 

Krystal McLeod is a 2015 Truman Scholar and 2016 graduate of NYU´s College of Arts and Science. She is most passionate about advancing diversity, inclusion, and equity in global contexts. After witnessing first-hand the educational disparities within her own household and community, she used her experience with national nonprofits, non-governmental organizations, and the United Nations Department of Public Information, to develop her own educational initiative “My” Right to Learn, as both a Dalai Lama and Gallatin Global Human Rights Fellow. In 2014, she instituted this summer program for low-income minority youth. Since then New York University has recognized “My” Right to Learn for its lasting impact with the 2015 Martin Luther King Trailblazer Award. Krystal has since continued her commitment to diversity and inclusion by serving as the Vice Chair to the University Senate Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and working at the White House within the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs on salient issues for underrepresented minority communities. In 2016 she returned to NYU to help manage global site-based diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. She is a President´s Service Individual Awardee, a New York State Independent Sector Community Service Awardee, OP Outstanding Regional HEOP Student Recipient, Dean´s Award Recipient, University Honors Scholar, and most recently a member of the NYU Alumni Association Board of Directors and NYU Leadership Initiative Advisory Council.
