Women in Water Profiles

We are collecting stories, meaningful experiences, and breath-taking photos from a range of women doing inspiring and exciting work in the water space. These women represent diverse walks of life and involvement in the world of water, including policy advisors, community mobilizers, academics, social justice warriors, lawyers, engineers, and more.

New profiles are added every few weeks (we're only human!) so stay tuned as we collect even more stories for you to explore!

 

Featured Profile: Leila Saberi

Leila is a PhD Candidate who studies glacierized watersheds in the Andes, but her inquisitive side largely stems from her time growing up near the Caspian Sea. Read her story here!
