Empowering communities with access to clean water can help change the world and alleviate the lifelong burden faced by girls and women around the world, who collectively spend 200 million hours a day gathering water. Join us for a discussion about the world water crisis and how it affects women and girls.

Dr. Shannon Márquez is the Dean of Undergraduate Global Engagement at Columbia University, and is a public health engineer who has garnered international recognition for her work on capacity building in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and global health to address the environmental burden of disease and the impact on child well-being and maternal and child health in low and middle income countries.
