Improving community engagement and increasing diversity in water sector leadership will help build a culture open to new ideas and reflect the communities served.

There are clear benefits to having gender and cultural diversity in the boards and management of the water sector, such as providing a range of perspectives and driving efficient and innovative service delivery.

Water corporations are required to focus on strategies to improve gender equity and indigenous inclusion in their business operations.

This page will let you know how your water corporation is performing in areas of:

  • gender equity in senior executive positions;
  • gender equity in its workforce;
  • progress on developing and implementing gender equity action plans; and
  • progress on developing and implementing Aboriginal Inclusion Plans.

By communicating clear performance information from across the industry the government can ensure that the Victorian water sector is providing the best possible service to the community.
