Carlsbad, CA – May 22, 2018, AESC announces that James Ferro, AESC’s Water Practice Lead, has been selected to participate in the Water Solutions Network’s inaugural cohort. This is a new cross-sector collaboration of leaders focused on the future of water management in California. The inaugural cohort is comprised of twenty-four leaders from a diverse set of organizations including farm bureaus, water districts, environmental advocacy nonprofits, and others.
This era of water management calls for people skilled in working across sectors and with multiple stakeholders. As such, the Water Solutions Network selected leaders who embody these traits and are committed to solving California’s most pressing water management issues.
The cohort will tackle issues from activating a systems-based approach to water management to pursuing an equitable water future for all Californians, and will participate in an immersive six-session leadership and network development experience.
“James’s participation in the inaugural cohort strengthens our ability to serve our public agency water clients by developing our leaders as cross-sector collaborators and big-picture thinkers,” said AESC President, Antonio Corradini.
Mr. Ferro confirmed that, “Being selected to participate in the Water Solution Network’s inaugural cohort is an opportunity to further develop my water policy knowledge and network while collaborating with a wide variety of groups to find solutions to our most pressing needs.”
