Women in Water

Rancho Cucamonga

Late last month the Inland Empire hosted its first Women in Water (WIW-IE) event at the Cucamonga Valley Water District in Rancho Cucamonga.  About 100 influential water professionals attended the gathering kicked off by Fontana Mayor Acquanetta Warren. The gathering provided a remarkable opportunity for attendees to network.  Although women are historically under-represented in the field of water and other environmental fields all of that is changing. In some circles it is believed forming coalitions like WIW-IE to support the professional growth of women in this field can be pivotal to communities.  The success of WIW-IE as well as having these women more visible in the community may serve as an impetus to other women who may be considering this or related fields..  WIW-IE recently formed out of the vision of Cucamonga Valley Water District coupled with a desire to form a local collaboration of exceptional water minds in the inland region. Although the organization is new, the group is already making its presence known and the first event was at capacity.   Those in attendance were in full support of the group’s mission statement which reads, “We are a dynamic collaboration of professional women dedicated to the stewardship of water within our Inland Empire communities through leadership, growth and innovation.” WIW-IE plans to host its next event at East Valley Municipal Water District in October.
