Policy and Advocacy Strategy


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 2024, our specific policy proposals are designed to achieve three broad objectives:


1. Australia’s governance environment enables sustainable, purposeful organisations that are both profitable
and internationally competitive.
2. Australia’s regulatory framework is clear, certain, coherent and fit-for-purpose.
3. To ensure the competence and professionalism of Australian governance and risk professionals
