Emerging Leader Program Development Survey
Since 2021, WaterNow has presented our Emerging Leader Awards on an annual basis. The Emerging Leader Award is dedicated to celebrating and advancing mid-level professionals from backgrounds under-represented in the water utility space, who are poised to take on leadership positions in the coming years, and includes a stipend which supports awardees in their professional development. We see the Emerging Leader Award as an opportunity to support water leaders of tomorrow and foster an inclusive and truly sustainable generation of leaders.
In order to further that goal, WaterNow is developing additional programming to support Emerging Leaders, providing them with the resources and tools they need to thrive as leaders in their workplaces and communities. This survey is intended to inform our decision-making process as we design the new Emerging Leaders Initiative. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of the following questions.
