The Women's Leadership Committee serves the community of professional women in their development within the water industry through community building, action-based workshops and mentorship.

Strategic Goals

Strategic Goals include creating an inviting space for new and current women members of AWWA and empowering women to develop solutions for the challenges faced by women in the industry. The overarching goal is to develop a supportive platform that cultivates relationships and ideas.

These goals are met through personal and professional development workshops at the bi-annual conferences that are action oriented, the development of a mentorship program to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience, a yearly professional development symposium, as well as regional networking events.
