Accelerating Gender Parity in Water Management

WaterWoman Project is the first women-led, diplomacy-driven initiative working to increase gender parity to solve the water workforce crisis.

WaterWoman Project’s Gender and Youth Hub, cohosted with NYC Mayor’s Office for International Affairs, will set the agenda on March 19, 2023 with the only platform centering gender and youth voices as solutions for addressing our global water crisis. 

Rebuilding our infrastructure must start with rebuilding a sustainable, diverse and equitable water workforce from within the communities our sector serves. We must empower the next generation, women and people of color on the front lines of climate change to pursue sustainable water careers. WaterWoman Project is doing this with data.

By filling the utility and technology data gap, we can close the gender gap by providing diversity-focused, on-the-job training in smart water tech and other essential water jobs. In doing so, we will accelerate the digital water transition, institutional data transfer and water infrastructure resilience.
