Meet Our Team

At MIT Solve, we are united in our passion for social impact and dedication to solving global problems.

Join our team

MIT Solve is committed to inclusion and diversity to build a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more diverse our team is, the better we can achieve our mission of solving world challenges.

Guiding Principles 

  • Practice Care: We prioritize work-life balance and staff health & wellness and recognize that work is one aspect of our multifaceted lives. We aim to be fulfilled by our work (not consumed by it!), and foster compassion and empathy amongst staff. We are able to bring our full selves to work, and are stewards of the environments in which we work.
  • Innovate Together: We are collaborative problem-solvers who think outside the box. We have an entrepreneurial mindset: we take risks, are creative, and celebrate success. We genuinely engage proximate voices throughout all stages of our work to ensure community-driven solutions, and we foster an environment where everyone feels invited, able, and safe to offer input. We know that we don’t know everything ourselves, and we seek collaboration, partnership, and to learn from those closest to the challenges we seek to solve.
  • Prioritize DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion): We know that inclusive cultures and diverse teams are more resilient and creative. We cultivate a team and communities of social impact agents that represent a diversity of thought, background, and lived experience – and strive for justice in our organizational processes and results. We particularly seek to increase access for those in underserved communities who may not typically have access to MIT, social impact, entrepreneurship opportunities.
  • Remain Adaptive: We are proactive about and receptive to feedback and constructive conversations, and set ourselves and each other up for success. One of our team strengths is the flexibility to be realistic about our capacity and to pivot, experiment, and grow accordingly.
  • Be Lifelong Learners: We believe that global challenges and solutions necessitate constant curiosity and learning about the ever-changing world around us. We strive for intentional, thoughtful, and confident staff who are enabled to work to their full potential, learn from one another, and grow personally and professionally. We understand that we aren’t perfect, and that mistakes are something to learn from, are an opportunity for reflexivity, and are an expected and welcome part of innovative workplaces.
