All women. All careers. All industries. All of South Australia.
What does being a member of The Community mean for me?
Being a Member means that you are part of the most connected, engaged and supportive community of women in the workforce, here in South Australia.

We walk alongside each other in SAW, no one is higher than another. Our members are all about supporting one another, because we know we soar higher together!

What our Members Say…
Starting a business is scary. SA Woman makes is SO much less scary! The support network it provides is invaluable and I couldn’t be more thankful! On many occasions I have had wobbles – mainly fuelled by self doubt and Carly and her team have been the most amazing cheerleaders. Keep up the awesomeness!
I joined SA Woman as a way of meeting self employed women who “just got it”. The experience has given me more than just meeting people – the connection , the ability to ask questions & access a huge “brains trust” has been invaluable. It’s been a fabulous supportive environment all round.
Things to know…
We know you may have questions, so have a read of our FAQ’s below.
If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to send us an email HERE.
How long does my listing last? How does my membership renew?
ALL MEMBERSHIPS AUTO-RENEW upon your anniversary date. While you will receive reminders, we recommend you also pop it in your calendar.
For Annual Upfront Memberships:
Your listing will be up for 12 months from when you sign up. You will receive instructions on how to set up your listing when you sign up. You will then receive a reminder a couple of weeks before it is due for renewal (we recommend you also set a reminder, just in case this email ends up in ‘junk email’). If you have a credit card/paypal setup, this will happen automatically at the membership price you signed up for initially.
Do you offer team or organisation memberships?
We sure do! Please get in touch with us with team/employee numbers and we will organise an exclusive code for you and your team! Email us HERE.
How do I get showcased?
For all members, there are opportunities in the members Facebook group (eg. about you profiles and collective blog opportunities) and also through Sponsorship options that are released during the year. The are so many opportunities in the connections you can make through being active in the group and/or attending an event when you can.
For the Soar Premium membership, we have set opportunities where we showcase your business. Please have a look at the membership details above. We have a schedule to showcase our premium members each month.
For the Rise Essentials and Regional level memberships, this is through the directory. The Rise Essentials membership allows you to build your membership as you grow and only access what you need.
Keep your eye on your Member News emails and the Facebook group for these opportunities.
It’s important to acknowledge that you will get out of your membership what you put in. Just having a directory listing and accessing one showcase opportunity will more than equal the value of your membership for the year.
Why is the Regional membership cheaper?
We have added a Regional membership to our lineup to recognise that while they have full online access, our Regional members may not be able to access as many events and other member benefit offers that those within or closer to the city can.
This is for those 100km+ from Adelaide CBD.
We plan to hit the road and visit our regional members areas 1-2 times per year and will organise an event or two while we are there, stay tuned for when we are in your local area.
How do I access the members Facebook group?
When you join up you will receive an email that gives you the low down on all things related to your membership.
If you can’t wait and want to get in asap after joining up, you can click HERE. (Please note: only Financial Members are added).
How do I receive communication from SA Woman?
The majority of our communication happens within the members Facebook group, however you will also receive regular member news emails from our Founder, Carly or our Head of Showcasing, Jess.
Your details are not provided to anyone outside of SA Woman and are kept confidential. You will only be emailed information that is relevant to our members.
How do events work? What if I can't go?
We provide numerous opportunities to attend in-person events throughout the year (dependent on Covid restrictions). Events are held mid-morning, evening and breakfasts during the week and are at varying price points. Occasionally, we will have a weekend event.
Members receive a special Members’ Price on all events (dependent on membership level). Events will be posted on the SA Woman Facebook page and sent out in emails.
We view events as an added bonus to your membership, so it is entirely up to you if you want to attend. It is certainly not expected, and we understand for some it can take some courage (we are super friendly and promise to look out for you if you decide to come along!). For some it is the highlight of their membership, for others just the online interaction provides them with the connections they need.
Is SA Woman only for business owners?
No! SA Woman is for all women in business or careers. While many of our members are business owners, this is not a requirement. We believe there is so much to gain from the connection between business and private and public sectors. And the connection of women whether they are an employee or a business owner is just as important for success. We are here to lift up and empower all women!
Currently, we have a number of members who are in the early stages of business planning and use the group for inspiration and a place to seek advice. We also have a number who work in organisations, especially those in marketing/business manager roles where they would like to spread the word about the business they work for. We are here to support, connect & showcase ALL women in business and careers in South Australia.
Are you registered for GST?
Yes, SA Woman is registered for GST. This will be itemised on your order and completed tax invoice.
