Join us as we celebrate INROADS’ 50th Anniversary and developing corporate and community leaders. Our celebration will include a Welcome Reception, Diversity & Inclusion Summit and Benefit Gala. 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!

This occasion celebrates the manifestation of the Frank C. Carr dream. Just over fifty years ago, Frank C. 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.
