Water Women's Day - Stronger together

07 Mar. 2023 • 09:00 - 19:00 • Online

We are delighted to jointly host a virtual Water Women's Day on Tuesday, 7 March jointly with the wonderful women's networks. We believe as water women we are Stronger Together and we would love to invite you and your female peers, students, friends, and colleagues to join us for an exciting program. The virtual event offers five sessions invites students, professionals, and employers to address challenges along the different stages of a woman’s career: attraction, recruitment, retention, and advancement. This interactive event is open to women in all their diversity working on water issues from sanitation to transboundary water management. We aim to create a safe space for women to share their experiences, ask questions, and support each other. The session for employers is open to all. 

Please register and join us for a session tailored to your needs (see registration links below).
