The US Water Alliance is hosting a webinar on building the water workforce on August 26th at 1pm ET. Building the workforce creates multiple benefits for utilities and communities alike. There is a high retirement rate in the water sector coupled with a growing shortage of water workers. Without planning ahead to recruit and groom the next generation of water workers, utilities will fall short of ensuring the same quality of service in the future. To address this challenge, utilities can invest in their communities and build a more inclusive water workforce through targeted workforce development programs that build the ranks of water professionals more fully and equitably. 

In this webinar, One Water leaders will discuss how workforce challenges can be addressed through community engagement and professional development programs. The webinar features representatives from Philadelphia Water Department and Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD), who will share their experiences in promoting workforce development, including Philadelphia Water Department’s PowerCorps PHL program and NEORSD’s Good Neighbor Ambassadors program. All registrants will also receive a recording of the session afterwards.
