Technical Programs Manager Morgan Brown named Industry Advocate of the Year
Three Water Environment Federation (WEF) employees were recognized and honored during the Empowering Women in Industry Gala, held Sept. 26 in Chicago. More than 60 women from around the world were nominated for making strides in several categories, including industry advocacy, mentorship and leadership.
Those recognized from WEF:
“We are extremely proud to have three members of our team recognized for their impact on the water sector,” said WEF Executive Director Walt Marlowe. “We know from working with Morgan, Lisa, and Bri every day that they are exceptional experts, advocates, and leaders, and appreciate that Empowering Women in Industry recognized them for their contributions.”
“We brought women together from water / wastewater, oil and gas, HVAC, construction, and in positions within manufacturing, engineering, sales & marketing, media and education, as well as entrepreneurs, tradeswomen, and operators,” said Charli K. Matthews, founder of the event. “This contributed to the success of our event as we pushed ourselves to learn from people outside our everyday network and career track. These women are the role models needed to build our future workforce – learning from and recognizing these leading ladies across industries makes a difference in effecting change.”
