The One Water, Our Water: Explore Milwaukee Water Jobs Fair is on May 12th, 2021, from 5-7 pm.  This virtual event is an extension of the Equitable Water Future Roadmap to build water workforce equity in Milwaukee, by focusing on fostering greater awareness of water sector careers among individuals, groups, communities, and organizations within Milwaukee.   To this end, MMSD, MWW, Veolia Water Milwaukee, and the DNR will provide information on the types of jobs that exist at each organization, as well as current and future job openings.

Participants will be able to ask questions and sign up for informational interviews.  Participants will also be sent workforce development materials and information on how to apply.  This virtual event will be the first in a series followed by a fall event focused more on direct hiring.

The One Water, Our Water Event begins the process of water sector stakeholders collaboratively addressing these barriers through building awareness as a means to developing employment pathways.  This virtual event is only a first step and the working group will be looking for more opportunities to further this work.

To participate in the One Water, Our Water: Explore Milwaukee Water Jobs Fair, register here.
