Catholic Relief Services advisor Tobin goes “On the Issues” to discuss global water resource issues
She will discuss our most precious resource—water—and what’s being done to address critical supply, sanitation and sustainability issues in nations around the world.
MILWAUKEE – Vanessa Tobin, Catholic Relief Services’ senior technical advisor for water supply, sanitation and water resources development, will be the featured guest of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, Feb. 5, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Tobin will visit Marquette Law School as part of the university’s campus-wide Mission Week activities. She will discuss our most precious resource—water—and what’s being done to address critical supply, sanitation and sustainability issues in nations around the world.
Tobin is a native of the United Kingdom. Before joining Catholic Relief Services, she led all the activities and functions of UNICEF in the Philippines. She has also served as chief of water, environment and sanitation in UNICEF’s New York headquarters. Tobin has worked around the world, and her experiences and observations should be of particular interest to individuals and companies in Milwaukee, which is home to the Global Water Center.
Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
