History

Partnering for Impact is a platform for influencers inspiring the water sector to achieve sustainability and resiliency goals, drive economic prosperity, encourage the next generation of professionals, create innovations, and build research and development capacity.  

Partnering for Impact events began in 2016 in San Francisco, California with 45 delegates from 15 national professional water organizations including Bluetech Research, Imagine H2O, WEF, AWWA, IWA, WRA, WRF, U.S. Water Alliance, NWRI, CWEA, SFPUC, and the LuminUS Group.  The group met to explore the simple question “how can we accomplish more by working together?”.  Since the initial inspirational meeting, follow-up national Partnering for Impact (PFI) events occurred in Chicago, San Francisco, Reno, and Washington DC.
