Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business is set to offer a spring course on how to reject gender and racial biases and promote an inclusive workplace environment.

Stanford’s new course will help “entrepreneurs create more conscientious companies,” according to the Wall Street Journal. The course offering follows numerous accusations of gender and racial discrimination against Silicon Valley companies, many of which are taking a new approach to work culture in response.

This is the first official course that Stanford has offered dedicated to evaluating startup policies, following recent discrimination battles plaguing major tech companies. Both Facebook and Google have been fighting allegations of pay discrimination, while Uber CEO Travis Kalanick resigned after accusations of sexism in the workplace.
