WaterAid’s vision is a world where everyone, everywhere has access to the basic human rights of safe water, decent toilets and good hygiene. But global progress on our vision is shamefully slow.
We know that diversity is key in achieving this vision. Governance needs diverse voices, and there is immense value in different perspectives. In this podcast series, Rosie Wheen, former Chief Executive of WaterAid Australia, and Jeffrey Grospe, Director of IT and Finance at WaterAid Australia, set out to capture some of the lesson WaterAid has learnt on it's governance and diversity journey, and the impact of putting those lessons to practice.
Throughout the series you will hear from seven different people including WaterAid board members, staff members, and other leaders. We will explore their experiences, their mistakes, their frustrations, and their hopes. We hope that these conversations offer lessons for you, and most importantly, provoke new insights and questions for all of us to reflect on. We must keep challenging ourselves and others, so that we can all consider- what does better look like?
