As the water sector faces challenges from aging infrastructure, climate change, financial constraints, and increased demands, professionals who can develop and implement solutions to these issues are needed. The Water Leadership Institute is designed to encourage innovation, entrepreneurship, and professional commitment from those individuals who will be leading the water sector into the coming decades, to preserve and enhance water resources for our current generation, as well as for future generations.
Participants in this program will engage in management training and leadership development through a blended learning approach that includes the examination of complex challenges facing the water and wastewater industries and networking with public and private sector practitioners. The curriculum will be delivered by high-caliber guest instructors from water and wastewater utilities and companies active in the sector. Guest lecturers from government agencies, communication firms, and financial groups will also share their knowledge and experience.

This includes emerging leaders in the water sector, which may include young professionals, career changers, and veterans. Applications must be submitted by January 31.
