Hack.Diversity

Hack.Diversity is an initiative of the New England Venture Capital Association, tackling the underrepresentation of high-skilled minority employees in Boston's innovation economy. Recognizing a distinct talent inefficiency (skilled labor shortage despite large, un-accessed talent pools), NEVCA launched Hack.Diversity to recruit, vet, and place Black and Latino computer science and engineering students into the region's fastest growing companies - with unique training, coaching, and support for both employer and employee throughout the experience. Hack.Diversity aims to buoy the regional innovation economy by effecting a 100% increase in the number of Blacks and Latinos contributing to it.
