EPA to Hold Webinar Focused on Women in the Water Sector Workforce

The Environmental Protection Agency is partnering with a variety of water sector organizations to hold the next webinar in the “Creating the Water Workforce of the Future” series. The agency, along with the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, the American Water Works Association, the Water Environment Federation, WaterReuse, and the Water Research Foundation are hosting “Women in Water,” a webinar discussing the major impact that women have on the water utility sector and why women continue to be underrepresented, particularly in leadership positions. A panel of three women at different stages of their careers at water utilities will share their stories and insights. Registration is available online.
