Workforce is a growing issue in the water sector.  We have developed a four part webcast series focusing on different aspects of workforce.  Join us for part or all of the series to increase your knowledge on the latest workforce issues and learn some new ways to address this.

This series addresses the following topics:
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Inter-generational Knowledge Transfer
  • Leadership
  • Technology
  • Planning for Uncertainty
  • Retaining Employees
  • Public Outreach

This series was developed as part of the final project for the Water Leadership Institute (WLI) 2019 and will take place throughout October 2019.  The WLI 2019 consists of 54 participants from around the nation with participants from Canada, El Salvador and Cayman Islands.  Each webcast consists of different sections developed by different groups.  Everyone worked really hard to put this series together with input from WLI Alum.
