PNWS-AWWA Diversity and Inclusion 2022 Survey

PNWS-AWWA Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) subcommittee mission statement: Foster welcoming and inclusive AWWA culture to make institutional changes.

This anonymous survey helps the PNW Section better understand the demographics of our membership, and identify areas of improvement to promote an inclusive environment where all members feel welcome. This annual voluntary data will be used by the subcommittee to help plan for recruiting and retention efforts.

Participants that complete the survey by Friday September 2, 2022, will be entered into a raffle for prizes. The Member Engagement and Development Committee (MEDC) is sponsoring two $25 e-gift cards and an opportunity to enjoy an Italian dinner in Section Chair Michelle Cheek’s home. Once you’ve completed the survey, additional directions will be provided to enter the raffle to assure anonymity from one’s responses. Raffle winners will be notified by September 9th.

If you are interested in compiling the 2022 results and/or developing initiatives based on the 2021-2022 results, please email esther.chang@jacobs.com to join the committee! Survey results will be made available at the Fall Training and Board Meeting.

The published 2021 Survey Report is available on the MEDC/D&I Committee website: https://www.pnws-awwa.org/member-groups/committees/membership-committee/
