Who is invited?
Everyone is welcome at the event! We especially encourage women and girls who are interested in learning more about careers with LADWP to attend.
What is the Women's Career & Wellness Expo?
The Expo is an opportunity for women, girls and the wider Los Angeles community to learn about career opportunities at LADWP, as well as employee initiatives and benefits LADWP offers to support women in the workplace.
At the Expo, attendees can:
• Speak with women from LADWP’s workforce about their careers, many of which are seen as “non-traditional” for women
• View equipment and machinery demonstrations
• Attend a wellness vendor fair
• Participate in a free exercise class
• Enjoy free food and giveaways
• Engage in children’s activities including a petting zoo and a rock climbing wall
LADWP is committed to advancing gender equity and women’s economic empowerment as we transition toward renewable energy and water resiliency. We strive to help narrow the nation's gender and racial pay gap by improving access to employment pathways, promoting the benefits of union represented high-quality jobs, and bridging the gender gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills. We are proud to lead this effort by hosting the first ever LADWP Women’s Career and Wellness Expo, which will showcase a variety of utility careers through demonstrations led by our own workforce.
