The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) invites community members, students, employees and prospective job candidates to the first-ever LADWP Women’s Career & Wellness Expo. The regional event showcases a variety of utility careers through a recruitment fair with information about skilled craft and professional jobs from our own workforce, along with equipment demonstrations and other hands-on activities. Attendees can also attend a wellness fair with information from healthcare providers and other vendors, along with cooking and interactive workout demonstrations, to encourage a healthy lifestyle at work and beyond. The event is family-friendly and open all members of the community, with activities for children like a petting zoo and climbing wall.
LADWP embraces diversity, supports wellness and offers its employees an avenue to live out their values in the workplace. The event aligns with the Department’s goal to help narrow the nation’s gender and racial pay gaps by improving access to employment pathways, promoting the benefits of union represented, high-quality jobs, and connecting high school students, particularly underrepresented female students, with career paths in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
