Spelman College in Atlanta Forms Partnership With Carrier Corporation

Spelman College, the historically Black educational institution for women in Atlanta, has announced a new partnership with Carrier Corporation, a leading global provider of healthy, safe, and sustainable building and cold chain solutions.

The five-year commitment will create two programs to prepare Spelman students to enter the workforce. The Carrier Ambassadors Program for Spelman honors students is a joint development and mentoring program. As a Carrier Ambassador, students will attend a five-week series of discussions that will feature Carrier leaders speaking about their career experiences and different pathways to success. Students in the program will have additional opportunities to meet and network with Carrier professionals throughout the year.

Carrier Elevate(S) will be a leadership development and mentoring opportunity designed for high-potential juniors seeking careers in engineering, sales, operations, digital, and finance. Throughout their junior year, students will participate in Carrier programming, including regular meetings with mentors and opportunities to apply for summer internships and, ultimately, interviews for full-time roles, including for Carrier’s Early Careers and Leadership Development programs.

“Carrier’s new commitment to supporting Spelman students couldn’t come at a better time. With the suspension of in-person career fairs, one of the challenges students are facing in our new virtual environment is connecting with potential employers and mentors,” said Mary Schmidt Campbell, president of Spelman College. “We look forward to working with Carrier to help our students identify and pursue their career goals.”
