2024 Webinar Series:


“One Is the Loneliest Number,” a 1970s Three Dog Night hit, could serve as tagline for Women in Utilities’ 2024 theme: The Power of Partnerships. This season, webinar host Andrea Pelt Thornton highlights the importance and impact of moving from a solo mindset to one characterized by partnerships and working closely with others.


These hour-long webinars set the stage CS Week 2024 in Fort Worth, its Women in Utilities’ Sunrise Event and Conference Workshop (Strategies & Management track). All will emphasize forging personal and professional partnerships for support during good times and reinforcing those bonds when times turn scary and paralyzing.
