Julia Clarke

Power Delivery Research Engineer, SCS R&D

I joined NSBE at my alma mater, Florida A&M University, and it provided me with the skills I needed to be a successful engineer. This partnership exposes the company to a wide range of NSBE members who may not have had Southern Company on their radar. It also gives Southern Company the opportunity to network with students beyond our footprint and discover top tier talent.

Gregory Roper

Engineer, Georgia Power

I have been a member of NSBE for 11 years and have participated in recruitment events for Southern Company. Partnering with NSBE and other minority organizations helps satisfy one of the company’s “Moving to Equity” commitments.  By procuring talent from a diverse pool of individuals, Southern Company can create a work environment that reflects the diversity of the customers we serve.

Nitou Makidi

Immediate Engineer, Southern Company Gas

I think it is important for Southern Company to partner with NSBE and other organizations such as Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), etc. because these are the places where we find fresh and diverse talent. It is more than diversity and inclusion but also about promoting equity. When we meet people where they are, we give them access and opportunity to join our workforce; and, to find the talent we need, it is imperative that the company seeks out students and mid-career candidates.
