About INROADS

Motivated by the Martin Luther King’s March on Washington Speech, INROADS founder, Frank Carr, left a successful career in industry to begin an organization that would transform the lives of talented minority students by giving them access to positions in corporate America. With the mission of developing and placing talented minority youth in business and industry and preparing them for corporate and community leadership, Carr set out to create a national organization that would achieve the dream of equality that King laid out. Over the forty years since its founding, INROADS has identified, trained and developed talented high potential students in internships in some of North America’s leading corporations and is the nation’s largest non-profit source of paid internships for diverse, high performing undergraduate students. Companies partner with INROADS to increase their access to high quality diverse entry-level talent. The INROADS process of selection and training is designed to take raw student talent and make them more competitive and more likely to succeed long term. That has been the INROADS point of difference in the market.

INROADS creates unique, one-on-one relationships with each Intern so that the Intern is matched with a company where there will be a long term fit. By providing the skills, relationships, and network needed, INROADS works to transform the Intern’s potential so that they can be leaders not only for corporate environments but also for their communities and the world at large.

INROADS recruits only the best students for pre-professional internship opportunities. Students who apply must have and maintain a B or better average, as well as, intentions to pursue careers in business, accounting, actuarial science, engineering, computer and information sciences, sales, marketing, allied health, healthcare management or retail store management.

Since its inception in Chicago in 1970, INROADS has grown from 25 Interns and 17 sponsoring corporations to an international organization with over 35 offices across North America. The staff provides ongoing support and career training and guidance to nearly 2,000 Interns sponsored by over 200 companies. The longevity of INROADS and the partnership it has with premier companies demonstrates the organization’s continued importance and relevance.

Today there are nearly 27,000 INROADS Alumni. While half of them have been in the business world for less than 10 years, the early Alumni have achieved great success. Steven Davis, Chairman and CEO of Bob Evans, Lou Nieto, former President of ConAgra Consumer Foods (retired), Willard S. Evans Jr., President of Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company and North Shore Gas Company, Connie Lindsey, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility for The Northern Trust Company, Lisa M.
