Water Innovation & Leadership Summit
Approximately 190 Georgia high school students will be attending a summit on November 1, 2023 at The Water Tower campus to learn how they can “Make a Splash” with a career in the water industry.
The summit is part of The Water Tower’s broader mission to attract, train and place the next generation of water workers in positions to support Georgia water utilities. Currently, there are an estimated 1,200 open water jobs in the Atlanta Metro Area alone. Water utilities across the U.S. are projected to lose up to 50 percent of operations staff in the next five to 10 years.
Students (grades 9-12) will engage with speakers from water-related businesses and organizations and experience hands-on learning about water career opportunities, including treatment plant operations, water sampling and lab analysis, pipe system design and engineering, stream restoration, wildlife assessment, robotics in water and more. Students will also have the opportunity to strengthen their skills in leadership, communication, strategic thinking, team building, and networking.
We look forward to seeing you for the 2023 Water Innovation & Leadership Student Summit on November 1, 2023!
