Finalists will be invited to pitch their solutions to a diverse panel of cross-sector judges, the Challenge Leadership Group, ahead of Solve Challenge Finals on Sept. 18-19 in New York City. 

2022 MIT Solve Global Challenges include:

Building on the 2021 Antiracist Technology in the US Challenge and Solve’s effort to be a culturally diverse and anti-racist platform, Solve is integrating U.S. racial equity solutions across their 2022 Global Challenges by launching the Black & Brown Innovators program. The program will include one or two solutions led by Black and brown innovators in the United States from each 2022 Global Challenge. In addition to the Solver program, these teams will receive culturally-responsive support and partnership opportunities and participate in the annual Indigenous and Antiracist Innovators Summit

In addition to the Global Challenges, Solve is also opening applications for the 2022 Indigenous Communities Fellowship, which looks for Native innovators in the United States and its territories.
