Hack for Inclusion is led by two student groups: MIT Sloan’s Breaking the Mold and MIT’s.
Participants from MIT and the surrounding communities, including those with both technical and non-technical backgrounds, will build solutions that address 10-15 of today’s biggest challenges related to bias, diversity and inclusion.
Key topic areas, among others, include socioeconomic inclusion at work, ability/disease stigma, STEM inclusion and facilitating the open expression of sexual and/or gender identity in the workplace.

Breaking the Mold believes that business school is the perfect environment to begin discussing – and solving – many of the most pervasive bias and discrimination issues affecting the workplace and beyond.
Hacking Discrimination is an MIT Black Alumni initiated group, including researchers and technologists from the MIT community.
Its members believe in using technology and a truly inclusive design process to bear witness to discrimination in a way that can be used for future advocacy, building a community to support change and generating tangible solutions to complex issues where bias and discrimination are critical factors.
