The Peachtree City Water and Sewerage Authority (PCWASA) is fortunate to have the professional expertise of approximately 40 employees with various responsibilities within the utility’s wastewater collection and treatment system, says General Manager Stephen Hogan. It is a diverse and accomplished work force, he adds.
One of those leaders on the PCWASA staff is also a leader within the Georgia Association of Water Professionals (GAWP). Keisha Lisbon Thorpe, P.E., the Division Manager for Technical Services at the Authority, moderated a technical session on Diversity during the recent GAWP Annual Conference & Expo in Savannah. She also chairs the Diversity Committee for the Association.
As a result of Thorpe’s guidance, the technical sessions on Diversity at the GAWP Annual Conference featured panel discussions that included the topic of “The Why and How of Diversity in the Water Industry.”
