The Police’s Director of Intelligence is set to become an ‘apparentice’ on Jersey Water’s board as part of an initiative aimed at promoting more women into positions of leadership and diversifying boards.
Acting Chief Inspector Louise Clayson, who has more than 20 years’ law enforcement experience, will join the board at their meetings over the next 12 months.
The project, which is part of the Government’s ‘Inspiring Women into Leadership and Learning’ (I WILL) initiative, is being facilitated by the not-for-profit organisation, ‘Board Apprentice’.
It aims to provide hands-on board experience for successful applicants and is an opportunity for boards to focus on succession planning, diversity, and the innovation and growth that can bring.
“As a host board, we are very much looking forward to the perspective that Louise brings and believe that both Louise and Jersey Water will benefit enormously from the IWILL initiative,” Jersey Water Chair Heather MacCallum said.
Ms Clayson added: “I look forward to gaining new skills and insights during this apprenticeship and to sharing my own knowledge and experience.”
