Supported by ISWA

Welcome to the Women of Waste (WOW) survey. WOW is an informal group supported by the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) created by women in the waste management sector to advocate and spotlight women’s work and achievements.

By filling in our survey of 10 short questions, you will be helping us to 'map out'  where we women are active in the world, what work we do and how many of us there are.  We can use the resulting data to better describe ourselves and the impact we make, giving us a 'clearer voice' in the sector.

This is just the beginning of our work, so please join us: take the simple survey and pass it on to other women working in the waste sector.

Thank you in advance from the Women of Waste team!
