The INROADS Founder’s Day event recognizes corporate partners, community advocates, and distinguished alumni who have honored and supported the INROADS mission through exemplary leadership, advocacy and partnership. This years’ awards and recipients include:

The Legacy Award for professional success and representation of the INROADS legacy to alumni Randy Sanderson, Co-Managing Partner of the SB360 Group; Darryl Jones, Managing Partner, D&D Concessions, LLC; and Sandra Moore, President and CEO of Urban Strategies.

The Visionary Leadership Award for service and commitment to the INROADS mission to former INROADS Managing Directors Lincoln Scott, Lawrence Hamilton, Judy El-Amin, Flint Fowler and Jada Jenkins Reese.

The Enterprise Award, presented to corporate partners that have exhibited a commitment to a diverse talent pipeline and have demonstrated consistent support of the INROADS mission, to Ameren Energy. Ameren’s 40-year relationship with INROADS began with its predecessor, Union Electric Light and Power, which housed INROADS’ first offices in St. Louis. Ameren will serve as underwriting sponsor of the event.

INROADS helps leading Fortune 500 companies grow pipelines of high-potential future executives, preparing and equipping promising students for corporate readiness with business soft skills and leadership development, while saving top companies the time and resources needed to recruit, screen, train, and place talented diversity students in corporate internships.
