The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) is pleased to announce that the Delta brand has agreed to be the Exclusive Sponsor of the Women of ASPE (WOA) for the third year. The contract was signed during the 2018 WOA Leadership Forum in Atlanta by Sarah A. Balz, PE, CPD, GPD, LEED AP, Chair of WOA, and Jason Gonzalez, Senior Director, Commercial Sales for Delta Faucet Company.
ASPE created WOA in 2015 to engage, retain, and advance women in the plumbing design industry through education, leadership development, and networking opportunities. The group is committed to bringing women together and assisting them in achieving their professional and personal goals. Delta Faucet Company is a leading manufacturer of kitchen and bath faucets, showerheads, tub and shower systems, toilets, and related accessories. Delta, its flagship brand, began its sponsorship of WOA in July 2016.
"Strong women and women leaders are the core of who we are as humans," says Gonzalez. "Women of ASPE represents what we can aspire to be in an industry that needs it. We need more diversity, more inclusion, more openness and opportunity. We're excited to be a small part of that growth."
"Delta's initiative in creating and promoting women leaders in its organization aligns with the mission of WOA to encourage opportunities for women in the plumbing design industry, and we are proud to continue our partnership with such a forward-thinking and innovative company," says Brian Henry, ASPE's Director of Affiliate Relations.
