Llewellyn Prain, Director at Greater Western Water, was recently recognised at the Victorian Disability Awards for the Emerging Leader Award. This award recognises an outstanding individual as an emerging leader who has made a significant contribution to improving outcomes for people with disability, by raising awareness and influencing others to shift community attitudes, creating cultural change or transforming services.
“I am humbled to win this award and it will drive me to do more work to improve disability inclusion in our community. Thank you to Peter Morison for nominating me and to everyone involved in WaterAble, particularly our fabulous organising committee.”
Llewellyn is the founder of WaterAble – a network for people with disability and their allies in the Victorian water industry. Established in 2020, WaterAble was driven by Llewellyn's passion for disability inclusion.
All water corporations from across Victoria have partnered with WaterAble to raise awareness and improve inclusion across the sector. Llewellyn also demonstrates disability leadership through her work as a non-executive director, a fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and as a public speaker. She is a disability inclusion consultant and has contributed to significant outcomes across the health infrastructure, education and transport sectors.
VicWater is proud to be a supporter of WaterAble. We congratulate Llewellyn on her achievements and deserved recognition at the Victorian Disability Awards.
