Part of MTLC’s mission is to build an inclusive tech ecosystem in the region. Over the years, MTLC has offered – and continues to offer — a number of DEI initiatives to bring women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups into tech careers and to support them once they are in the industry.

We have been recognized by our peer tech councils across North America, and locally by BostInno, for these efforts.

Our newest effort, the 2030 Challenge is a call to action for the entire community – employers, lawmakers, educators, community groups, etc. – to help double the percentage of Black and Latinx workers in tech jobs in Massachusetts by 2030. MTLC will benchmark progress against the 2030 Challenge goals and create programming to support the initiative. Learn more.
