World Water Week 2022, here we come!

We’re excited to finally share WaterWoman Project, WaterRising’s call to action to study and close the gender gap in water management! Building on the pioneering work by World Bank Water and UNESCO WWAP, with Founding Partners SUEZ and Xylem, we’re collaborating with water utilities, technology and engineering in the U.S., U.K. and Europe to distill data and clarify barriers to water sector jobs for women and non-binary people. Then we’ll start course-correcting with best practices and new entry points to accelerate the transition to a more gender-inclusive, water resilient future.

WaterWoman Project increases gender parity and promotes more inclusive access decision-making in water management to accelerate progress toward UN SDGs 5, 6 and 14 by 2030. We see a prime opportunity to build a gender-inclusive and community-centered workforce as the water sector transitions to smart technologies. Striving for gender parity will ensure women and nonbinary are represented in leadership and at all employment levels. To learn more, visit WaterRising.org.
