Resources on Women in the Water Sector

AWWA has a long history of recognizing women leaders in the water sector. In continuing this tradition, AWWA is hosting a series of events in 2022 to help build a community to support women in water and create an inclusive environment. 

Here you will find handouts from these events as well as other resources related to supporting women in the water sector. These resources have been prepared by AWWA staff and other organizations such as The World Bank and Society of Women Engineers.
