"Throughout her career in both public service and private enterprise, Ms Freeman has been a staunch advocate for fairness and equal opportunity for all.

"I have no doubt her breadth of experience will help build on the important work Water Corporation is undertaking around Aboriginal empowerment and equitable service delivery, in line with its core values.
