Build Connections. Be Seen. Forge your own path.
All industries. All careers. All regions.

Soar with us.

Join the movement of South Australian women

in business and careers, soaring higher together.

What we do.

At SA Woman we are all about elevating South Australian women and girls so that they can build connections, be seen and recognised for their achievements, contribution and innovation and forge their own path in a career or business they love.

 We believe that all women deserve to be seen and recognised for their contribution to South Australia. We see inspiring stories and heroes everywhere. At the supermarket checkout, in our schools, in our small businesses, in our healthcare industry, in our leaders, in our girls and beyond. From all regions of SA, to all industries backgrounds and experience – we are here for all women working to make South Australia great!

We have three core pillars to support our mission:

Connected.

Build Connections.

SA Woman is here to support women to build new connections and foster relationships. We are about redefining networking – the SA Woman way. We are here to connect women and girls with the support and resources they need to soar. To connect the community with the women behind the companies, brands and businesses. To create a place online and in person where women feel they belong to a community of women who want to see them rise.

Seen.

Be Seen.

SA Woman is dedicated to bringing women to the forefront. It is time our women and girls are seen for the achievements, impact and innovation they bring to South Australia. We will celebrate, we will share their stories, we will show our women of the future and the world what our State has to offer in business, in career and in the community. EVERY South Australian woman is worthy of being seen, it is our mission that they are.

Elevated.

Forge your own Path.

SA Woman is committed to supporting women and girls to forge their own paths to success – however that looks to them.  By creating connection, sharing stories and creating a movement of women soaring high and empowering one another, we are dedicated to showing women and girls what is truly possible. We can’t be what we can’t see, it’s time to see it!  It’s our time!

Helen Edwards  – Helen Edwards Writes

Helen Edwards – Helen Edwards Writes

I’m an Adelaide-based children’s author who weaves diverse stories of nature, magic and history. My debut middle-grade novel, The Rebels of Mount Buffalo was published in October 2023, by the award-winning Riveted Press, distributed by Simon and Schuster. It’s a captivating time-slip tale in which a girl lost to grief meets a daring rebel on a misty mountain who guides her to rediscover her courage and find her way home. The Rebels of Mount Buffalo was longlisted in the inaugural DANZ Children’s Book Award for books which feature diversity in all forms.

I have a PhD in Psychology and a long background working in mental health. I write stories that reduce stereotypes and increase understanding of diversity, including characters who live with chronic illness, mental illness, and/or who are neurodivergent. I write stories that reflect our Australian environment, culture, and history. I have been blogging since 2001, after founding an award-winning online counselling service for people with diabetes, which I ran for 16 years. Over 100,000 people follow me across social media, where my platforms share book reviews and inspire action for people and planet, with kindness and hope, focusing on our children’s future.

I have won a number of awards, including being a South Australian State Finalist for Australian of the Year for my work in diabetes. As well as The Rebels of Mount Buffalo being longlisted in the DANZ, I was winner of the ZestFest writing competition, a special mention in the inaugural Deep Creek Fellowship, and short-listed in the inaugural SA Literary Fellowship.

I am an experienced speaker and have presented talks and workshops locally and internationally across a wide range of topics. I am a member of Writers’ Vic, Writers’ SA, Qld Writers Centre, Women’s Society of Writers Victoria, ASA, CBCA and SCBWI. I am part of the Author Pen Pals initiative and an Ambassador for Australia Reads and a Role Model with Books in Homes. I am passionate about inspiring action for our beautiful, fragile planet and nature features in all of my books. I find history fascinating and uncover stories that may have been forgotten, or hidden, and bring them into the light. My second novel, Legend of the Lighthouse Moon, will be published in October 2024 and my third in April 2025.

If you’re looking for a children’s author who speaks from the heart, who laughs loud and loves deep, who is passionate about people and planet, and who understands we come in a glorious rainbow of human beings, I’m your person.

Hayley Towers  – Towers Legal

Hayley Towers – Towers Legal

Hi, I am Hayley Towers and I run my own micro law firm, Towers Legal.

I am a business lawyer, operating virtually for clients all over Australia. I have 18 + years of legal experience and I do all things contract, risk and compliance, employment, and even disputes.

My clients are usually “bigger” or regulated small business owners who need that extra bit of legal help on an on-going basis. I love to form ongoing relationships with business owners, so that we can work together holistically, often in step with your business accountant.

I live in the Adelaide Hills with my husband and two boys.
