Carnell Tate

Industry: Clean Energy

Bio: I can’t remember a time when I was not fascinated with cutting-edge technology, and I had no choice but to devote myself to becoming an engineer. As I got older, I discovered how a career in engineering would equip me with an arsenal to disrupt our broken energy paradigm and renewable energy offered a new world of promise and potential that I wanted to be a part of. Working with Black Oak would be more than a job for me. My insatiable desire to learn about and apply renewable energy solutions drives me to perform work with unstoppable diligence.

Daija Odom

Bio: My interests and passions align with sustainability, business, and storytelling. I have a background in Environmental Science, and strategic communications, and I am currently working towards entering the corporate sustainability sector. I am familiar with food waste management, energy efficiency, and GHG accounting. I strive to educate those unfamiliar with sustainability on how to make effective changes. My experience working at MOM's Organic Market during the pandemic taught me to communicate sustainability strategies in the midst of uncertainty. And my experience as a graduate student at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management has allowed me to combine my education with hard skills for clients. I am happy to connect and further discuss effective change.
