Everyone should have the opportunity to grow their business, to experience success, and achieve their dreams. We'd like to offer enterprising minority business people the opportunity to do just that.
We offer programs to help us actively seek minority-owned, female-owned, and small businesses that offer quality goods and professional services and provide solid business opportunities to these suppliers in order to maximize their participation in the procurement process.
Our Mentor Program helps build relationships between Southern Company employees with buying authority and minority and female suppliers, enabling suppliers to increase awareness of opportunities at Southern Company, and giving purchasing employees wider supplier choices.
Second Tier Program
Southern Company strongly encourages prime suppliers to extend subcontracting opportunities to minority-owned and female-owned firms. This program has added opportunities for minority businesses in companies we do not own or manage.
