Southwire’s AUCC Partnership

Southwire’s partnership with the AUCC focuses on offering experiential educational opportunities and scholarships to the students of the consortium’s dual degree engineering program. From supplying student internships and scholarships, to being a pipeline for opportunities to work at Southwire after graduation, students within the AUCC’s engineering program will have many opportunities to advance their careers in the electrical industry through this opportunity.

“I really applaud Southwire for recognizing that there are so many people of color who can contribute to these companies, and for reaching out to the AUCC to create that pipeline for these students,” said James. “It’s not about one group of people being able to offer the talent that you need, it’s about using the talent around you. By reaching out to our organization and making the first move in this partnership, Southwire is setting a standard for diversity and inclusion in education that I hope will encourage other corporations to do the same.”
