Join the Leadership Council

The Water For People Leadership Council was formed to recognize and celebrate the legacy of the water, wastewater, and engineering sectors in pursuing our shared vision — a world where every family has access to safe, clean water and sanitation services.


Benefits of Joining the Leadership Council

In addition to the good they are doing in the world, members of the Leadership Council enjoy the benefits of aligning their companies to an impactful organization with a universal cause. Through heightened employee engagement, stronger corporate social responsibility programs, and opportunities for executive-level networking with peers within the sector, members gain as much as they give (or more!).

"Given our singular focus on water, Carollo Engineers’ core character is perfectly aligned with Water For People’s vision of a world where every person has access to reliable and safe water and sanitation services. Carollo’s people’s amazing support for Water For People demonstrates a fervent belief in the approach of engaging with communities to empower and promote sustainable change."
