Join us as we celebrate INROADS' 50th Anniversary and developing corporate and community leaders.  Our celebration will include a Career Expo, Welcome Reception, Diversity & Inclusion Summit and Benefit Gala. The Career Expo will provide an opportunity for attending partners to scout, screen, interview and/or hire mid-level career professionals. The Diversity & Inclusion "Disruptive Innovation" Summit will include workshops for professionals and the Benefit Gala is a beautiful evening of networking, dinner, entertainment and dancing as we honor those who have carried out the INROADS mission!

During the 50th Anniversary celebration we will welcome 75 INROADS interns who are graduating college seniors to participate in a Corporate Interview Day and 50 high school students to participate in the College Links Hack-It Upstart powered by STEMBoard and INROADS, which is a coding and pitch competition.

From its founding in 1970 in business executive Frank C. Carr’s home city of Chicago, INROADS has grown into a nationally recognized 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, impacting the lives of over 154,000 youth.

This occasion celebrates the manifestation of the Frank C. Carr dream. Fifty years ago Mr. Carr, a prominent publishing executive based in Chicago, traveled to Washington, DC as an attendee of the March on Washington in August 1963. After hearing Martin Luther King’s speech about the dream he had for America, Frank Carr returned to Chicago with a mission in mind. Carr believed that Martin Luther King’s dream could become a reality and began plotting a course that would change the face of corporate leadership. In 1970, Carr founded INROADS and his legacy began. INROADS believes the changes in our culture and history we see today reflect Frank Carr’s vision of diversity.
