AWWEE is thrilled to invite you to this inaugural event of our new Silicon Valley regional team. We hope you will join us to hear from five women leaders representing utilities in Silicon Valley.

In this conversation, our speakers will reflect upon their professional journeys and share stories of their challenges and triumphs, what they wish they had known and what lessons women pursuing similar career paths can learn from them.


Rekha Ippagunta, Project Engineering Manager at Alameda County Water District
Lori Mitchell, Director at San Jose Clean Energy
Jan Pepper, CEO at Peninsula Clean Energy and Vice Mayor at City of Los Altos
Kerrie Romanow, Director of Environmental Services at City of San Jose
Bhavani Yerrapotu, Deputy Operating Officer at Valley Water
Moderated by Heather Dauler, Intergovernmental Affairs Officer at City of Palo Alto
Path to Power events are some of AWWEE’s most popular because they offer a unique look at the lives of women we admire. Speakers share candidly about their experiences and we often learn that we have more in common with them than we might have thought. The audience is always encouraged to ask questions, so you never know exactly where the conversation will lead. That’s what makes Path to Power events so much fun! We can’t wait to see you on August 28 for this special event.
