WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH IMPACT EVENT
During Women’s History Month, INROADS hosted the third segment of its Impact Series on March 18, 2022: And Still We Rise: Women Making It Work in the Workplace. The INROADS Impact Series brings thought leaders together to discuss and create solutions for a more equitable and inclusive work environment. Women in the workplace experience underrepresentation, pay gaps, bias, and discrimination - and women of color even more significantly. Additionally, fatigue and burn-out exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic called on women to face more than ever during the past two years. And yet, women continue to rise. Our panelists discussed their personal experiences and challenges encountered during their own growth journeys in corporate America. They gave guidance and practical tips on how women can achieve their career aspirations and support each other while doing so. They also discussed how allies can create positive change for equity in the workplace.

TOWARDS EQUITY: WEALTH IMPACTS FOR BLACK PROFESSIONALS IN CAREERS LAUNCHED BY INTERNSHIPS
This article expands upon the study of wealth impacts for students who matriculated through a career development program targeting African American, Hispanic, and Indigenous students. The study was conducted by Fulbright Scholar, Adam Davids, who was hosted by INROADS, a nonprofit organization focused on providing access and opportunities for career acceleration to students from backgrounds underrepresented in corporate leadership. Authors theorize that students who matriculate through the INROADS process can leverage training, professional experiences, and the support of peer connections to land in high-income careers and build wealth. An analysis of economic indicators shows considerable wealth enhancing outcomes, compared to college educated White peers, including heightened rates of homeownership, higher income, and comparable net worth.
