    Dear ENTREP listserv friends,
     
    I hope you all are safe and well in this strange time.
     
    I write to ask for feedback, and to perhaps spark a conversation among those interested in diversity, equity, and inclusion in entrepreneurship classes.
     
    I am working to update my Introduction to Entrepreneurship class (large section) to develop multiple ways that I can create a more inclusive learning environment for all members of the class.
     
    My aim is to update the syllabus language (e.g., pronoun inclusivity statement, ADA accommodation, equal opportunity wording), the books I use, the cases I discuss, the videos I list for viewing, as well as the content of the class to be more representative of multiple types of diversity, including racial, ethnicity, gender, geographic (e.g., immigrant experiences), and neuro or ability diversity.
     
    Here is a start on some options...I invite anyone who is interested to add to this public Google Spreadsheet (and/or respond to this listsserv thread, or email me privately at jmpolla3@ncsu.edu).
     
    My best to all, Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    This is a topic that is very important to me.  I have taken the liberty of adding a second spreadsheet to the Google Sheet for folks to share any language they include in their course outlines / syllabi.

    Thanks for getting this rolling,
    Larry
