Dams are coming down and many women are leading the charge! Laura will focus on the steps to remove a dam and highlight some of the efforts of the many women who are making it happen. She will be describing the processes to removing a dam including communications, movement building, program development, policy, funding, decision making, project management, permitting, analysis, engineering, and construction.
