In her article for the #WaterExchange newsletter, Dr. Elesia Glover addresses gender equity in the water sector.

"When most people think about the water industry they think of a male dominated field. Historically, it has been overwhelmingly male driven, although there have been and are many great women in the industry today. Currently women represent less than 15% percent of the United States (US) water workforce."

On 18 and 19 June 2018, the regional conference on reducing gender inequalities in the WASH sector in West and Central Africa took place in Dakar (Senegal). Organized on the initiative of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (UN Women), the meeting was hosted by the Government of Senegal through the Ministry of Water and Sanitation. At the conference, West and Central African countries evaluated the progress in reducing gender inequalities in the WASH sector, while also analysing the barriers and challenges they face. In this context, the governments of Cameroon, Niger and Senegal shared their experience of integrating the needs of women and girls, including menstrual hygiene, into national policies and water and sanitation budgets.

In presentations and a panel discussion, a quartet of Penn researchers with diverse backgrounds will share their research and thoughts about water. Nikhil Anand and Bethany Wiggin will present their work on Mumbai and Philadelphia as two chapters in a global story about trade, water, and empire; the creation of port infrastructure and the loss of historic wetlands; and the response of contemporary communities to changing waters, including those rising as a result of climate change. And with the crisis in Flint, Michigan as a backdrop, Richard Pepino will discuss his investigation of the risk of lead service lines contributing to childhood lead poisoning in Philadelphia. Howard Neukrug, Director of the new Water Center at Penn, will offer a brief introduction to the panel.
