Introducing Future Leaders to Opportunities in Water

In 2019, the Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association (PNCWA) launched a program called InFLOW (Introducing Future Leaders to Opportunities in Water): an initiative that strives to identify promising students and young professionals from underrepresented minority groups who are interested in careers in the water industry.

In 2020, due to the impacts of COVID-19, PNCWA reimagined this program to be a year-long, five-part workshop in preparation for the fall conference. These five workshops focus on information related to the water/wastewater industry, networking, skills development, employment opportunities, and conference preparation. In 2022, this initiative continues to identify and introduce these students and young professionals to careers in the water industry. Building off the successes and the lessons learned from the first years of the program, PNCWA is continuing in its mission to change the face of the water industry and help build a more diverse and inclusive world.

The program will engage these underrepresented groups in the form of a sponsorship to attend the PNCWA 2022 Annual Conference, taking place in Spokane, Washington September 11-14, 2022.
