Episode #1 Jamal Grant: How can groups of people born into an unfair starting point in society thrive?


Jamal Grant is the Founder of the NET Mentoring Group, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization he founded to address the STEM academic achievement and opportunity gap in Greater Boston. The NET Mentoring Group serves underrepresented minorities and young girls in the Boston area through providing STEM programming, mentorship and access to resources in the city.

Jamal is a former mechanical and aerospace systems engineer at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and is currently a Dual MBA/MPP candidate at the MIT Sloan School of Management and Harvard Kennedy School of Government (2022).

Recently, he has taken his experiential learning to new heights in organizing a documentary film project trip to South Africa in March 2019 where he and a team of three other researchers explored wealth inequality in South Africa 25 years since the first democratically-elected government.
