The article goes on to state the following:

Points include using “inclusive pronouns (they/them/theirs, students, Rams, everyone)” as well as using “the yellow emojis when addressing a diverse audience” and avoiding “gendered emojis when possible,” instead encouraging students to use “one of the variations of the yellow smiley faces or object emojis.”
