Policy and Advocacy Strategy


We listen to our members and advocate their views through policy reform.


Governance Institute believes high standards of governance are essential for public trust in organisations. Well-governed organisations deliver better performance and safeguard the interests of their stakeholders, including shareholders, employees and the community.


Our 2025 advocacy objective is to be the sought-after voice that shapes the governance environment — the go-to authority for governance and risk for members, government, regulators and the community.


In 2023, our specific policy proposals are designed to achieve three broad objectives:


Australia’s governance environment enables sustainable, purposeful organisations that are both profitable and internationally competitive.


Australia’s regulatory framework is clear, certain, coherent and fit-for-purpose.


To ensure the competence and professionalism of Australian governance and risk professionals.
