SINCE OUR FOUNDING IN 2016, CURRENT HAS PUT WATER INNOVATION FRONT AND CENTER AS AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY AND SOLUTION TO A DEEPENING CLIMATE CRISIS.
We’ve helped raise more than $28M dollars to support water innovation and inclusive economic development; launched x technology pilots; supported the commercialization of technology at x water companies; and educated more than 30,000 people through our events and convenings.
Chicago is our sweet, freshwater home, but our partnerships stretch across Illinois, the Great Lakes region, and the world.
— Rahm Emanuel, former mayor of Chicago
Simply put, our strategy is to convene the right players, not for talk, but for action. Together, we win funding for water innovation work and then quarterback the execution.
Why Water? We will feel climate change most acutely when our water dries up. And if things don’t change quickly, it will.
Companies on the forefront of preventing water crises will win. Our job is to ensure that the Great Lakes region becomes a global leader in protecting our scarce water resources from both pollution and misuse.
Current is looking for Communications Manager to lead Current’s communications, marketing, and external engagement efforts. The primary goal for this role is to help us build our brand and audience with a growing network of partners and collaborators, especially given the exciting growth opportunity ahead of us with our NSF Regional Innovation Engine, Great Lakes ReNEW.
