Boise Women of Water Event

“Starting the Women in Water group in Boise means creating a space where women can start a connection with people they might never have met…” 

The Boise Women of Water event took place on December 3, 2019, and all 40 attendees are looking forward to the next event! Emily O’Morrow, Brown and Caldwell, and Allison Hornak, HDR, helped organize the event and each has deeply personal reasons for bringing together women from across the industry to network and learn from one another. Emily credited her motivation to her career and being directly impacted by other women she met in the industry who instrumentally helped her along the way. She wanted to give other women the opportunity to be in a supportive environment as well. Allison worked as the only woman in a new company in the water sector and often felt isolated in her new role. After meeting another woman at a PNCWA networking event and striking up a lasting friendship, she realized the value that these connections can create and also wanted to open the door for other women to have similar experiences. 

A few of the benefits of these events include: creating connections, mentorship, and support systems to ensure the success of fellow women, and finding women in shockingly similar roles to you that creates instantly lasting friendships. They fulfill a unique niche in the water industry and are highly beneficial for the participants. 

“I came to connect with women in the Boise area who are equally passionate, and also to join a place where women feel comfortable discussing their professional ideas,” said O’Morrow. The team is already planning the next event set to take place in October 2020 at Seattle University. Keep your eyes on the digest and the PNCWA LinkedIn page for updates.
