Globally, only 18% of workers in the water sector are women*

About WaterWoman Project

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

We believe that striving for gender-inclusive access to opportunities in water management means ensuring representation for all genders in leadership and 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.
