Career track features sessions on various facets of the water industry.

The Next Generation Water Summit always looks to provide innovative content, and 2019 is no exception. The final day of the Summit will feature a “Careers in Water” track aimed at students preparing to embark on their careers, as well as others who might be seeking a career change. The Summit will take place June 12-14 in Santa Fe, NM.

Mary Ann Dickinson will help kick off the day by participating in a panel discussing leadership roles in the water industry. “I’m thrilled to present once again at the Next Generation Water Summit,” exclaimed Dickinson. “This intimate event on sustainable water provides a great balance between deep-dive sessions and networking.”

Friday’s career track will also feature sessions on various facets of the water industry that are applicable to projects big and small, including water certifications, alternative water, irrigation and landscape. “We’re really excited to offer content that is relevant to today’s students, but we also hope they take the opportunity to network with some of the most prominent leaders in the industry,” said Doug Pushard, co-Chair, 2019 NGWS and co-founder of KUELWater.

Back by popular demand, the Summit will host one charrette for a limited number of attendees. It will take an in-depth look into the most effective and innovative water efficiency programs in the West. The Summit’s agenda also features renowned presenters, such as Dr. Jonathan Overpeck, Nobel Prize-winning author; Paula Kehoe, Director of Water Resources at San Francisco Public Utilities Commission; Dr. Nirit Bernstein, Institute of Soil Water and Environmental Sciences from the Israeli Volcani Center; and Radhika Fox, Chief Executive Officer of the US Water Alliance. They are scheduled to present on a diverse range of topics, from forest restoration to commercial water sharing to water reuse in Israel to the concept of one water.
