Insight – Executive Leadership for Women in Water program

Expressions of interest

12th September 2019

Insight will support the Victorian Governments commitment in Water for Victoria to focus on gender equity and improve diversity at executive level roles in water corporations and catchment management authorities.

The program is for women aspiring to executive-level careers who are ready to take the next step and offers a unique balance between self-development and learning from others.

It will challenge thinking and elevate confidence, resilience and visibility. It will bring together a group of like-minded women to create a collaborative and supportive peer network. This is a highly personalised 12-month experiential learning program that addresses the “what is missing in your leadership journey”.

The program is sponsored by DELWP and supported by a Leadership Oversight Committee comprising water sector and industry representatives. They are:

  • Helen Vaughan (chair) – Deputy Secretary, Water and Catchments Group (DELWP)
  • Sue O’Connor – Chairperson, Yarra Valley Water Corporation
  • Georgina Gubbins – Chair, Great South Coast Food and Fibre; Deputy Chair – Non-Executive Director, Wannon Water;
