Founder of Water Movement
As founder of Water Movement, TC Energy employee Bita Malekian is a 2021 national honouree in the L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth program and has been named a 2021 Top 30 Under 30 by the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation. Soon after graduating with a mechanical engineering degree in 2018 and starting work at TC Energy as an engineer-in-training, Bita founded Water Movement, an Engineers Without Borders venture. In Canada, there are currently 39 Indigenous communities still under a boil water advisory. Driven by the belief that everyone has the right to access clean drinking water, Water Movement’s mission is to tackle barriers to clean water by providing an online interactive space where Indigenous water operators can connect, ask questions, share lessons learned and access a free video learning library.
