Water is a Women’s Issue

This Earth Day, join us for a conversation around the water crisis and how women carry most of the burden. Women spend hours every day hauling water for their families—and they’re the ones who take care of the children that inevitably get sick because the water is dirty or they’re not able to wash their hands. When a community has water, women can spend their time and resources to find jobs, learn skills and run small businesses. In this candid conversation, hear from Kelly Parsons, CEO of WaterAid America, Cate Luzio, CEO and Founder of Luminary, and Alison Gilbert, Sr. Specialist of Water Stewardship at Gap Inc. on why this issue is so important for women and for global sustainability.
