This paper describes preliminary research into pedagogical examples that incorporate topics that address diversity, equity, inclusion, and mental health. By specifically looking at participant feedback from self-assessment assignments in the framework of live audio classes, needs were identified, and pedagogical approaches were taken to incorporate and address these usually neglected elements within a classroom focused on teaching technical applications. This paper is written for educators that teach technology who would like to explore a case study where the author consciously attempts to address topics that are currently front and center in the face of educators. This work responds to calls within the field to strive to improve accessibility, welcoming diverse genres, radiating inclusiveness to all races, gender, and gender identities.
