Women’s Water Fund – career advancement for women in the water sector

The Women’s Water Fund helps women from developing countries advance their career opportunities in the field of water resources development and management.

The Women’s Water Fund has been created at the initiative of DHI and was originally funded by the “King Hassan II Great World Water Prize” presented to Professor Torkil Jønch Clausen, DHI, at the Fourth World Water Forum in Mexico in 2006. This year, Danida (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark) is co-sponsoring the Fund.

The Women’s Water Fund calls for applications from women in (or on their way into) middle management positions for a combined learning and mentoring program that draws on Danish expertise in water resources by offering a capacity building visit in Denmark.

The program includes:

- A one-week course on water resources and environmental technologies and management
- A one-week internship at a Danish organization or company within the field of water
- A one-year mentoring program with a senior Danish water manager as mentor for each participant.

A call for applications for the 2013 course has been launched and applications are to be submitted under “Jobs” on DHI’s home page no later than 21 June 2013.
