Tim Worley '83

Last fall, Tim Worley (Political Science, '83) helped launch the Transformative Water Leadership Academy (TWLA). This program is part of the American Water Works Association and WaterNow Alliance, and has a diverse inaugural cohort of emerging water leaders from across the United States and Canada. Tim notes that diversity is central to TWLA, which aspires to open new doors of leadership to women and POC, who are vastly underrepresented in leading the water sector. Discover more about the TWLA on their website here.
