Inroads is an organization that develops and places talented minority youth in business and industry positions and prepares them for corporate and community leadership.

INROADS was founded by Frank C. Carr in Chicago in 1970 with just 25 college student interns and 17 sponsoring corporations. Today, INROADS is an international organization with more than 60 offices serving approximately 5,000 interns in over 900 companies.

There are three keys to success for INROADS students: Selection, Education and Training, and Performance. For over three decades, INROADS has helped businesses gain greater access to diverse talent through continuous leadership development of outstanding students of color and placement of those students in internships at many of North America’s top corporations, firms and organizations.
