    Thasunda Brown Duckett

    INROADS Alumni
    President & CEO, TIAA


    “INROADS was not just a great catalyst, it was my disrupter. INROADS changed my trajectory. To be surrounded by other interns with the support of INROADS that is pouring into your confidence, showing you what it means to network and engage in an executive forum. Reminding you that your magic is real. That is what INROADS provided me.”

    AIDYA SHORTS

    INROADS FSI Program Participant
    Georgia State University

    “My experience at FSI has expanded my knowledge in my professional career and personal growth. FSI works with students to become the best versions of themselves and has prepared me for the future. I would recommend this program to all students.”

    Sekou Kaalund

    Vice-Chair, INROADS Board of Directors
    Head of Consumer Banking, NE Div at J.P. Morgan


    “My vision for INROADS is to both serve the needs of students and corporations in their evolution to hiring more diverse talent. Post George Floyd there's obviously still an important need for greater diversity. My vision is that INROADS continues to be one of the key organizations that enable corporations to tap into diverse talent, but also continues to prepare that diverse talent to capitalize on opportunities.”
