Wonderful Women of Wastewater

This event will be conducted using Adobe Connect.For Audio, VOIP will be used. Be sure to have speakers or a USB headset. If you've never used Adobe Connect, please test your connection at: http://admin.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm

Calling all professional, scientific, technical, engineering and just plain innovative women who work in the wastewater fields! Whatever work you do, be it hands down dirty or high level supervisory, or anything in between, come join your colleagues on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 -2-4pm ET!

This is a virtual meeting where the fabulous WWWs will gather around the Adobe Connect 'water cooler' to rally young women and inspire them to stay in school. In the US, girls comprise 70% of science, technology, engineering and math college students. But only 45% of them stick with it to graduate.
When Warren Buffet was asked to what he attributed his success his reply was that he was only competing against half the population - ie. the glass ceiling.The general perception that wastewater is a 'man's' profession flies in the face of reality. But are we losing ground? Are young women being put off by the 'ick' factor? Have we returned to the time when nice girls don't get dirty? If you are a fabulous WWW or just aspire to be one - stop by on September 23rd, 2-4 pm ET and tell us your story.

Every Body Deserves A Decent Throne! A celebration of World Environmental Health Day

To raise awareness of how lucky we are in this country, on Friday September 26, to mark World Environmental Health Day, we are hosting a 6 session seminar called simply "Every Body Deserves A Decent Throne!"

Hosted via Google Hangouts On Air, and live streamed to YouTube and Twitter, the morning will talk about how far we've come here in the US and Canada. Looking at the history and the new innovations of sustainable wastewater systems will be a stark contrast to the afternoon when we look at the challenges of providing safe sanitation and drinking water in Africa. But the day will end on a hopeful note, looking at new technologies and NGOs making a real difference in meeting those challenges.

Our primary goal on the 26th will be to help buy as many 'thrones' as possible for DeeperMissions.org.

There will be 6 sessions, all available at no cost via Google Hangouts On Air. Each session will be a separate Hangout On Air.

All times listed are US Eastern Time Zone. All events will be live streamed to YouTube and archived there for future viewing.

Schedule is as follows:
Every Body Deserves A Decent Throne: Crossing the Sanitation Divide - Past, Present and Future.

Moderator for the day is Patrick Lucey. His bio can be found at the aqua-tex.ca web site. See:
