Founder & CEO
Alicia Douglas is a WaterWoman. She is the founder of three startups, and has over 30 years of experience in philanthropy, sustainability, public policy, and community engagement.
Ms. Douglas founded WaterRising Institute, a Michigan-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization to address gender parity in the water industry. In 2022, the organization achieved Guidestar’s Gold Transparency Certification and became a member of 1% for Planet.
More recently, she launched WaterWoman Project, a WaterRising program focused on increasing gender diversity in water management by catalyzing industry leadership and engagement.
Her ability to collaborate with global stakeholders also led to the development of an innovative, GIS technology approach to addressing the global water security crisis.
