The MIT Solve community is searching for technology-based solutions by and for communities of color that help create antiracist and equitable futures in the US. To that end, Solve seeks solutions that:
- Provide tools and opportunities for equitable access to jobs, credit, and generational wealth creation in communities of color.
- Catalyze civic engagement and enable communities to plan and control their own housing and industrial land development and ownership patterns.
- Create new public safety systems that ensure racial equity and provide alternatives to harmful technologies such as biased facial recognition.
- Actively minimize human and algorithmic biases, particularly in healthcare, education, and workplace settings.
All solutions selected for Solve’s five current Global Challenges will receive a $10,000 grant funded by Solve. Solver teams will be selected by a panel of cross-sector judges at Virtual Solve Challenge Finals on September 19, 2021.
Anyone, anywhere around the world can submit a solution to Solve’s Global Challenges. You can be an individual, a team, or an organization. You can be an applicant from previous years or already part of our community.
