Melody Birmingham was a bit of a “unicorn” early in her career.
There weren’t many young Black women from the Midwest in management at the Rochester, New York car factory she started her career at after college.

Today, Melody serves as executive vice president of Nisource. During a recent visit to our office, she talked about her experience with gender parity – and the lack thereof – in the utilities industry, plus a whole lot more.
