Less than 20% of workers in the water sector are women or non-binary.

About WaterWoman Project

WaterWoman Project is a new program of WaterRising Institute that increases gender parity and inclusive decision-making in water management to accelerate progress toward UN SDGs 5, 6 and 14 by 2030.

We believe that striving for gender parity in water management means ensuring equal access and inclusive representation for women and non-binary at all levels of employment. 

To turn our water crisis into water resilience, we must rebuild a water workforce that is skilled, diverse and sustainable from within the communities our water sector serves.
