To mark International Women’s Day 2021, we decided to take some time out to hear insights from just some of the great women in our team.
International Women’s Day is commemorated on March 8 and is about celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women all over the world. It is a day to recognise how far we’ve come towards gender equality, and also how far we have left to go.
The theme for 2021 is Choose to Challenge: Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
The Healthy Land and Water approach
Healthy Land and Water prides itself on its strong multifaceted team of men and women, who bring an impressive set of complimentary skills and capabilities to deliver for the environment and liveability of South East Queensland.
For International Women’s day, we take a quick look at insights and achievements from a cross-section of women on our team – from our board, to our leadership team, to our committed Healthy Land and water team.
Healthy Land and Water is fortunate to have strong experienced representatives sitting on the Board, of whom five of the seven are female. We would like to acknowledge the achievements of our female Directors Mayor Karen Williams, Nadia O’Carroll, Nikki Poteri-Collie, Amanda Creevey and Melissa Impiazzi.
Three out of the five members on our executive are female, our CEO Julie McLellan, CFO Michele Clatworthy and Corporate Affairs General Manager Suzie Christensen.
Our team is made up of scientists, engineers, project managers, team leaders, communications experts, accountants, finance professionals, and an amazing corporate services team.
Healthy Land and Water would not be able to achieve what we do without the support of our dedicated, passionate and hard-working team of women.
