Wyandanch Resident Honored by PSEG Long Island for Women in Construction Week and Women’s History Month
Amanda Mitchell supports and mentors co-workers, women and young people in her community
(UNIONDALE, NY – March 17, 2021) — For Women in Construction Week (March 7-13) and Women’s History Month, PSEG Long Island recognized Wyandanch resident Amanda Mitchell. More than 30 years ago, Mitchell became the first woman in her department to test meters out in the field rather than in the shop. Today, Mitchell is at the top of her discipline as a Master Meter Technician. Though Mitchell said she never thought of herself as a woman making history, her career path has certainly paved the way for other women in the industry.
A leader on the job and an active member of her union, Mitchell is vice president of the IBEW Local 1049 Electrical Workers Minority Caucus. She also participates in community service projects to build homes, fight cancer and mentor young people in Wyandanch and across Long Island.
PSEG Long Island operates the Long Island Power Authority’s transmission and distribution system under a 12-year contract. PSEG Long Island is a subsidiary of Public Service Enterprise Group Incorporated (NYSE:PEG), a publicly traded diversified energy company with annual revenues of $9.1 billion.
