There are only two options that come immediately to mind: \verb=^= and \^. The first will not work inside another command and the second is actually an accent so should be typeset as \^{} (if you only want the caret).

It might be useful to know how you intend to use the symbol. For example, if you want to use is as a binary operation in mathematics you could cobble together something like


in your preamble.
