Free virtual event 

Featuring Cathy Bailey, the first woman and African-American woman to lead the Greater Cincinnati Water Works, and a trailblazer in bringing an equity and community focus to water service delivery.

Access to water and sanitation are recognized by the United Nations as fundamental human rights. This means every individual should be entitled to have physically accessible, sufficient, safe, and affordable access to water and sanitation. Governments play an important role in achieving this through the utility services that they provide. This 1-hour talk, hosted by the City of Kitchener, will explore the role of government utilities to provide access to water and sanitation services and how this can be achieved through an equity lens.
