The water sector faces workforce challenges that can only be addressed by strong and sustainable partnerships that also focus on the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Water jobs at utilities offer good pay, security, and a real opportunity to make a difference in our communities. Please join us on September 15th for this webinar. 
Candi Jones from the Philadelphia Water Department will describe an innovative partnership with PowerCorps Philadelphia to attract and retain men and women from disadvantaged communities into meaningful careers. She will be joined by Andy Kricun, formerly the director of the Camden County Municipal Authority (CCMUA), and now with Moonshot Missions. Andy will talk about engaging and fostering partnerships with organizations across New Jersey to develop a state-wide water workforce program involving state agencies, utilities, NGOs, community colleges, and others to help address the acute need for water workers across the state.
This webinar is part of an ongoing webinar series hosted by EPA, in partnership with leading water sector organizations around the country. More information on this webinar series can be found at https://www.epa.gov/sustainable-water-infrastructure/water-sector-workforce-webinars
