Consistent with the Paul College mission, we aim to be “an inclusive community that respects and harnesses the power of diverse perspectives, identities, and experiences to enhance learning.” One way of promoting diversity in the classroom is by thoughtfully including diverse teaching and learning material. Through inviting a greater range of voices, narratives, and perspectives in the curriculum, we may be more successful in creating an environment in which our students feel included and engaged in the learning process. In featuring diverse teaching and learning material, we can represent more accurately the rich diversity of our country and the world.
The purpose of this resource guide, therefore, is to provide a foundation of diverse learning material across a variety of topics and functional areas of business. In some cases, the article or video is authored by, and/or features, an individual from an underrepresented group. In other cases, the company featured is led by an individual (e.g., the President, AVP, COO, CMO, etc.) from an underrepresented group. In many cases, it reflects both.
This guide, of course, is by no means exhaustive. Users are encouraged to incorporate other materials in their teaching that foster diversity and inclusion in their classrooms and are invited to add to this resource guide, as well, through this Google Form. Please contact Lauren Haley with questions or comments about the resource.
A brief summary is included for each of the articles, videos, and case study as well as a code to indicate the category of diversity represented in each (G: Gender; R/E: race/ethnicity; O: Sexual Orientation).
