Inviting Nominations and Applications for the Next Water Solutions Network Cohort
Do you know a leader who is dedicated to solving California’s water challenges?
The Water Solutions Network advances cross-sector collaboration among leaders focused on the future of water in our state. The initial six-session cohort experience connects and supports individuals who value engaging all stakeholders and bridging differences to ensure resilient and equitable water management in California.
Our second cohort of 24 people will participate in a shared learning experience beginning next March, building relationships and skills that enable collective problem-solving and action. This cohort will be comprised of a diverse set of mid-career leaders from a variety of roles in the water system – farmers, irrigation and residential water managers, conservationists, environmental justice advocates and more – who work in the Sacramento Valley, Delta region, and the Tulare Basin. You can read about our current and future cohorts here.
The Water Solutions Network is a joint project of three partners, Coro Northern California, DIG IN, and Water Education for Latino Leaders (WELL), with sponsorship from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation. In addition to participants from the cohort and others working on water in California, the network is advised by a group of leaders drawn from all sectors; members of our Advisory Council are listed below.
We encourage you to share this announcement with your contacts. We hope you will nominate exceptional candidates for the Water Solutions Network and/or personally consider applying to participate. More information and an online nomination form are available at WaterSolutionsNetwork.org. Qualified candidates can also self-nominate by completing the online application form by Nov. 9, 2018.
Effective water management is vital to the economy, ecology, and wellbeing of 21st-century California. Decision-makers today face issues ranging from an aging infrastructure and persistent water quality problems to extremes in both our weather patterns and policy perspectives. The state needs leaders who can cross boundaries, connect resources, and choose bold action that serves California’s communities, farms, and nature.
The Water Solutions Network seeks to empower and connect more of these leaders. We hope you’ll stay in touch with the Water Solutions Network as it develops. We welcome your questions and ideas, and invite your suggestions on ways we can all collaborate for a more secure, equitable, and resilient future for water in California.
