About image
“Urban Utilities has been happy to support me to do anything I want, so long as I can provide a good case for it. It’s the opportunities you get here that you might not get elsewhere: going to conferences, accessing extra training and education, being part of the Young Water Professionals network - it's just unparalleled. We have a lot of women who are in YWP, so we tend to focus on how we can encourage women to progress within the industry. That's definitely a big thing for us. We also have the Pride in Water group, and that’s really encouraging to see, too.”
