American Water’s Women’s Employee Business Resource Inspires Future Women in Water

Girl Scout Troops from IN, NJ, VA and WV.

WE CAN (Woman's Empowerment Champion & Ally Network), American Water’s Women’s Employee Business Resource Group (EBRG), joined forces with local Girl Scout Troops across American Water's national footprint to celebrate Women's Equality Day. The WE CAN EBRG, including several employees who are also troop leaders, took the initiative to offer tours of their local American Water treatment plant, imparting valuable knowledge about the water industry to the young participants. WE CAN was grateful for the opportunity to empower the next generation of women and look forward to future collaborations.
