Partnerships for Diversity in Water Resources Education

by Neil S. Grigg,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water

Abstract: Environmental industry partnerships for education offer excellent opportunities to leverage public investments and actions to attack three linked problems: underrepresentation of women and minorities in the environmental workplace, providing attractive career options for youth, and protecting the environment Greatest interest has been shown by the federal government and by educators, but private industry and local government are needed because they have the most jobs and capabilities to contribute. Grassroots partnerships are required to initiate and sustain programs. They need incentives and encouragement to keep committed people working together.
