“At Carrier, we’re committed to building the best teams, and this starts with diversity of talent and ideas. We are proud to work with Spelman College, a leader in the education of Black women. The programs that we’re creating together will provide impactful student experiences and build a strong pipeline of talent for our company,” said Dave Gitlin, President & CEO, Carrier. “This partnership is more than financial support.
