Mississippi Public Service Commission-Regulatory Actions to Improve Workforce Diversity

The Honorable Cecil Brown, Vice Chairman, Mississippi Public Service Commission

Dr. Alexander G. Washington, Ph.D., Chief Policy Advisor, Mississippi Public Service Commission

In October 2018, The Honorable Cecil Brown and Dr. Alexander Washington of the Mississippi Public Service Commission held a Historically Black Colleges and Universities Utility Careers Summit. The purpose of this summit was to bring together utilities, which offer stable career pathways, and regulators and educators who have expressed the need to diversify the workforce at utility companies. Together, these different groups discussed building pipelines to employment in the utility industry for minority students. Please join The Honorable Cecil Brown and Dr. Washington, as they discuss the groundwork for developing the summit, the outreach and outcomes, including how this framework can be replicated by other organizations and regulatory commissions. This is an excellent opportunity for regulators, utility executives, human resource professionals and anyone interested in the future of a diverse workforce.
