To participate in the Tech Compact, tech companies commit to change in three or more areas relating to diversity, inclusion, and social justice.

"This is a time when people are speaking out and we, as leaders, need to listen to them. This is how change happens, and that is why we launched the Tech Compact for Social Justice," stated Tom Hopcroft, CEO of MassTLC. "We recognize that Boston and the tech industry have not done enough to support and encourage the inclusion of Black, Latinx and Indigenous people and we accept our responsibility to do more to make change at the company and community level."
