Any insights for helping open the entrepreneurial capital pipeline to more diversity? Diversity within the VC community can be a limiting factor.
Kristin Slice
01:03:15
Going beyond attraction and participation, any further thoughts on what programs and resources we need to effectively serve diverse communities? What additional or different tools should we add to our tool box?
Nima Merchant
01:03:30
People have talked about metrics. Are folks tracking demographics for application based programs and events? I think events could be a pipeline for us to find more diverse speakers but comes at the cost of a few more questions for every event registration. (I personally think its worth it)
Wendy Bolger

rachel julkowski
01:05:11
Many E&I educators are not experts on DE&I. In conversations around teaching ethics in E&I, we heard many educators express hesitation to teach ethics as they weren’t experts. I imagine we’ll see similar hesitation around DEI. This would be a significant obstacle to making progress. What advice do you have for encouraging educators to speak to DEI directly in their classrooms and for breaking through this silence?

the Hacking4Resiliance program at Stanford is a 5 day program solving issues related to COVID all online. It is a great way to introduce students to the entrepreneurship/lean startup methodology.

We have a new training available for students talking about engagement with our larger community along with the University's historical context as perceived by the University that has a heavy focus on understanding your own diversities, similarities, and how that interacts with our external support through the Center of small businesses, for example.

Kesha - love the blog post from UNC, so well done (and hi from down the street!) Here's a post that our team at CASE (Duke Fuqua School of Business SocEnt center) posted with some of the DEI actions that we are taking - we are very much still learning but thought it might have some usefulness for others: https://centers.fuqua.duke.edu/case/2020/06/04/a-message-from-case-on-racial-justice-in-america/
Holly DeArmond
01:08:06
This afternoon at my school, the Smith School at UMD, we are having Smith Solidarity afternoon where we are encouraged to spend the afternoon reading, learning, acting, etc about diversity and inclusion. So, I think my center will do more of this type of activity where we set aside dedicated time for our staff, board members, students and faculty to have dedicated time to learn, brainstorm, etc. about racial inequities and how we make a real impact.

+1 to Rachel’s question on advice for encouraging educators to speak to DE&I directly. Any resources to support educators to have productive conversations on these topics, especially knowing that so much education is online and missing the in-person components?
Keysha Jones (she/her/hers)

Hi Erin, thanks for sharing! We are all working on improvement our work and commitment to DEI. I'm sure there are ways we can collaborate and share best practices! I sent you a request and look forward to connecting.
