The People Summit - Graphic

safety - culture - leadership
25 May 2023

People are the water sector’s most important asset and without them the Victorian Water Sector would be unable to deliver world class services to enhance the liveability of our communities.

This summit aims to showcase safety, culture and leadership and put a spotlight on all things people. Some key areas of focus will include managing psychosocial impacts on staff, the water sector safety pledge, driving cultural change and leaders of the future.

The People Summit will be a hybrid event, taking place at Pitcher Partners Melbourne and online and will attract executive level management including managing directors, water corporation and CMA board directors and chairs, as well as People & Culture executives and management.
