Globally, women are under-represented in entrepreneurship learning environments. Women’s lived experiences and perspectives are rarely reflected in course content. Courses and programs often emphasize masculinized and idealized imagery of who is an entrepreneur and what it means to be entrepreneurial. Our goal is to provide a roadmap for the design and development of entrepreneurship training and education. The research findings will help ensure that programs and courses better reflect diverse cultures, gender inclusion, and intersectional identities.
