INROADS, a leader in talent development for the underrepresented; Careerminds, a leading outplacement services corporation
ATLANTA, June 22, 2021 — INROADS, Inc., a global talent and career development leader, partners with Careerminds, a global contemporary outplacement provider, to ensure INROADS alums and interns are well positioned to take advantage of this evolving economy. At its height, joblessness claims in America topped 30 million. The pandemic, and factors that include global trade disputes, have left millions of Americans reeling as they search for employment. Communities of color have disproportionately been impacted.
“People are hurting out here,” said Forest T. Harper, Jr., president and CEO, INROADS, Inc. “Due to circumstances beyond their control, many leaders find themselves on the losing end of corporate downsizing. Our partnership with Careerminds seeks to add to our work of ensuring that INROADS professionals remain in a position to impact corporate America with their talents.”
Careerminds is leading the charge with AI-powered job search trends and best practices. They will provide INROADS’ recent graduates with outplacement and career services, and help them transition to full-time jobs by providing career navigation, resume writing support, AI-powered job search, and interview preparation support.
“Service providers that connect talented and emerging leaders to careers are not very diverse. Our commitment to racial equity demands that we pioneer ways to develop a diverse pipeline of talent and connect diverse candidates to the careers that align with their passion and skills. INROADS provides us with an opportunity to partner with a premier organization that is focused on racial employment equity,” said Raymond Lee, founder & CEO, Careerminds.
“INROADS is effective because we connect those we serve to a proven talent and career development process. When that process ends, it is vital that our commitment to those we serve doesn’t. Careerminds is an extension of our ongoing commitment to putting those we impact in a position to win at work and in life,” said Harper.
From Microsoft to JPMorgan Chase, INROADS alumni are a mainstay in corporate America. But America’s recent unstable economy has left many corporations with the tough reality of the need to downsize. The sweeping layoffs in corporate America have left many talented leaders without work. INROADS’ partnership with Careerminds looks to put many of these leaders back to work. With more than 30 million alumni around the world, INROADS is a leader in career development and placement of talented and underrepresented youth. For more than 50 years they have provided leadership development services that have helped millions of underrepresented talent earn powerful careers at influential companies.
INROADS is the world’s largest nonprofit organization committed to developing the leadership of talented and underrepresented youth. With more than 30,000 alumni worldwide, INROADS has contributed to increases in the number of C-suite executives in corporate America.
