Diverse global cities lead by making water a central priority and show how it can be managed in a way that is not just more sustainable, but is transformative and provides community benefits ranging from improved resilience, livability, and economic vitality. The Water Environment Federation uses the term “Great Water Cities” to describe these leading cities and brings their water leaders together to communicate their success stories. There are lessons to be learned from these innovators that can help others transition to a great water city.
To that end, we have convened a series of conversations to inspire discussions and identify effective practices. Join us for the latest in our series of discussions with these transformative leaders at the WEFTEC 2015 plenary session as they discuss, “The Impact of Leadership: Culture, Communication and Community in Great Water Cities.”
All water utilities and cities are faced with rapidly changing pressures. Whether it’s changing economic conditions, increasing regulations, or a changing climate, strong leadership is needed to plan, respond, and move quickly, all while maintaining current levels of service. Come hear from water leaders who are driving transformational shifts at their organizations, effectively changing the culture, communicating strategically, and engaging the community for a more resilient future.
