This webcast is fourth in a four part Workforce Webcast Series focusing on different workforce issues. The webcast series and was developed as part of the final project for the Water Leadership Institute (WLI). Each webcast consists of different sections developed by different groups.

This webcast will consist of two components lasting 45 mins each. Please find the information for each section below. The order of the presentation is as follows:

  • Communicate, Educate, Protect. Our Future Depends on It: As environmental and economic stress forces water utilities to do more with less, communication with customers and decision makers is more important than ever. However, communication strategies targeting decision makers will be different from those targeting the general public. This section highlights top concerns of the industry and effective strategies for communication to different audiences.
  • Water Careers: An Ocean of Opportunities: This presentation is for water industry HR, communications, and outreach professionals and will provide insight on how to demonstrate the breadth of industry opportunities to job-seeking individuals from all walks of life, skillsets, experience, and education levels.

There will be 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) offered for this webcast. Please check with your state accreditation agency to determine if you qualify.
