Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our goal at MassChallenge is to build DEI into the DNA of the innovation ecosystem. This means supporting a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive ecosystem and working environment through three pillars: foundationally by looking at our systems and core processes, internally by focusing on building an inclusive culture to attract and retaining strong employees, and externally to make our programs more accessible and to build capacity to ensure the broader community can support our goals. You can read more about this here.
At MassChallenge, our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (I.D.E.A.) working group consists of team members from all corners of the business and focuses on executing initiatives tied to our three pillars. The I.D.E.A. group also holds MassChallenge accountable and ensures the organization’s actions reflect our values and mission.
There is a spot for every MassChallenge team member in the I.D.E.A. working group. Whether you join the group or not, all MassChallenge employees are expected to continue to grow and learn while on their personal DEI journeys, attend regular trainings, and work and act in a way that supports the mission and goals of our organization. As a company, we have DEI-related goals across all areas of the business: community, startups, experts, partners, donors, alumni, and team. Through this work, the team at MassChallenge leads each other, our community, and the innovation ecosystem to be more inclusive.
We welcome applicants from all races, sexual orientations, genders, identities, and abilities who can enhance our culture and increase our diversity of thought. We recognize that skills are gained in many ways, whether it be through professional, academic, or lived experience. We also know that it’s not always easy to apply for a job if you’re not sure you check every box in the job description. There is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ candidate, so no matter your background and how you identify, we encourage you to apply for this job if it would make you excited to come into work.
