Carnegie Mellon University is dedicated to providing a culture of inclusion and breaking down barriers that inhibit our students, of all needs and abilities, from reaching their full personal, academic and professional potential. 

The goal of The Olitsky Family Foundation Career Readiness Program is to break down the barriers-of-entry for students with emotional and cognitive differences in their career-search process.  The program takes a unique, 3-pronged approach by engaging our 1) students, 2) local campus community and 3) employer partners in various events to achieve long-term, sustainable success for our students.
