About Hack.Diversity

We tackle the underrepresentation of high-skilled minority employees in Boston’s innovation economy. We recruit Black and Latino computer science and engineering students into the city’s fastest-growing companies — training, coaching and mentoring both employer and employee throughout the experience.

What’s our vision? We want a 100% increase in the number of blacks and latinos working in the innovation economy in Boston.

This is how we do it

Students graduating from coding bootcamps, 2 and 4-year colleges apply

Once selected, students are put into a small and engaged cohort

Throughout the program, students go through career and interview coaching

Students start the summer with an internship with some of the fastest growing companies
