NWRA Women’s Council Launches New Professional Development Resource

Arlington, VA – The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) Women’s Council is proud to launch a new professional development resource for the employees of NWRA member companies. This resource is a digital communications platform hosted on Microsoft Teams called the Professional Women in Waste and Recycling (PWWR) Channel.

The PWWR Channel will provide a way to connect the groups dedicated to women within the waste industry. It offers an opportunity to network, and share professional development as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion resources with one another.

“We are proud to launch this important resource to help realize our vision of connecting and fostering the professional development of women in the waste industry,” said Allia Saydjari, senior director of sustainability for WIN Waste Innovations and treasurer of the NWRA Women’s Council, who chaired the project. “This virtual platform allows us to expand the availability and reach of waste and recycling resources and education to NWRA member companies.”

Channel membership is open to all employees of NWRA member companies. Those interested can sign up here.

The NWRA Women’s Council’s mission is to advance and promote the waste and recycling industry and give back to its member companies through education, networking, professional development and the award of academic scholarships.
