2018 Women in Stormwater

Sponsored by Jacobs, we will be celebrating women in leadership at Stormwater 2018’s Women’s Breakfast on Wednesday 10th October, 7.30am - 8.45am.  This is an event not to be missed and Stormwater Australia's President, Dr Belinda Lovell, encourages all to attend.

We have two exceptional speakers Kelly Maslin from Jacobs and Licia Heath who is currently campaigning for the seat of Wentworth by-election.

This by-election will be held on 6th of October, so Licia will have plenty to share about the experience at our Women’s Breakfast. 


Kelly Maslin

Kelly Maslin 


Kelly is the Vice President and Executive Director or Operations for Jacobs, leading a team of 800 multi-disciplinary engineers, scientists and architects across the Australian Southern region in the delivery of projects like the Melbourne Metro project and Yarra Valley Water (YVW) capital delivery program.

Prior to her current role Kelly was the Director of Operations for the water team.  Kelly’s technical background is in hydrology and hydraulics with a specific focus on Dam Safety.  Kelly joined Jacobs in 2014 after 17 years working in a range of operations, business development and technical roles at URS.


Licia Heath

Lucia Heath


Whilst having a Bachelor of Science majoring in Hydrologic Engineering from Melbourne University, Licia has spent the last 19 years in the financial services and asset management sector, working with firms such as Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse in London and Australia. She helped establish, and is a shareholder of, a $5b AUM Australian-based asset management business, Ironbark Asset Management.

Heath is known for her involvement with the not-for-profit organisation, Women for Election Australia (WFEA), a non-partisan group committed to increasing the number of women in public office at local, state and federal levels. 

Licia believes it's critically important for women to have an increased voice in Australian politics, and hence has personally committed herself to political participation by nominating as an independent in the upcoming Wentworth by-election.
