Together we will elevate our South Australian women of today and our women of the future.

Since 2017, SA Woman has been here to create impact and shine a light on the contributions of women in South Australia and on the future, our girls.

We believe that all South Australian women and girls deserve the opportunities to forge their own path, in a business or in a career. We believe that connection is key to a sense of belonging, encouragement and empowerment. We believe that “we can’t be, what we can’t see”, and sharing the stories and paths of the women who walk beside us, is key to elevating the status of our women and girls and empowering us all to unleash our potential. .

Connect Her

We create opportunities for connection, belonging and support through our membership community, our varied events and our storytelling.
Community and Connection are key to a State where we truly see women supporting women. 

Elevate Her

We elevate the profile of women and girls in businesses and careers, through our social media, blog, magazine, awards and advocacy.
We bust through ceilings, break down barriers and show what is truly possible, from right here in South Australia .

Empower Her

Through connection, community and elevating the achievements and contribution of the collective of women and girls across SA, we encourage her to grow and feel self-empowered to forge her own path. Nothing is impossible when we believe in ourselves.

“We can’t be, what we can’t see. SA Woman is here to show all women and girls what is possible.”

Meet an SA Woman.

Our members are the beating heart of all we do and believe in our vision of an empowered and equal future for our women and girls.

I am a commercially-focused communications professional, bringing nearly 20 years of experience across numerous industries including telco, automotive, defence, energy, FMCG, health and finance.

I enjoy working with clients to understand their challenges, and develop meaningful solutions. I’m particularly excited by corporate communications, brand and reputation. I’m skilled and experienced at issues management and public affairs.

Amongst the brands I’ve loved working with are Beaumont Solutions (Health and Safety), Disaster Relief Australia, YMCA Victoria, Lockheed Martin, Vodafone, and Mitsubishi Motors.

A mother of two teen girls, having my own business allows me to spend more time with them and for us to make memories – whilst fully leaning in to the pointy end of their schooling and wellbeing.

Rebecca Kelly  – The Vitality Project

Rebecca Kelly – The Vitality Project

I am know by most as Beck… I am a wife, a boy mum and a fur mum.

I have been in the fitness industry for over 15 years and I honestly couldn’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I love helping people and the fitness industry has been the tool I have used in order to help people change their lives. During lockdown, I was working at the park and in my garage and it was an opportunity for people to be in a more relaxed environment (they could even bring their kids with them). It was then that I realised that I needed to do this for myself and for the people in my community. I opened the doors to the current studio in November 2020. I love having my own space because I can be flexible with my clients and help tailor everything to their specific needs. It gives me a connection to our community it also gives me flexibility as a mum and a wife to be able to have some balance.

I help my husband run his award-winning commercial fitout business called Total Fitouts which has grown from one office in Adelaide to now also having an office in Melbourne and is taking up more of my time these days.

I do enjoy traveling and exploring new places, reading, watching movies or occasionally binge watching something on Netflix but generally working with my clients or on my business is what I spend most of my time doing.

Nicola Benson   – Beautifully Authentic

Nicola Benson – Beautifully Authentic

I am an Environmental Scientist, Beauty Therapist and Mother, that decided to turn all her passions into a business by accident.

I am from Cornwall in the UK and moved to Australia in 2013 to live here in Adelaide with my husband. Since then, we’ve had 2 children, a dog and a cat, and absolutely love our life here.

I love reading, surfing, roller skating, bike riding, going on adventures, camping, exploring, and meeting new interesting people.

When I left school in 1998 I became a beauty therapist, and that’s when I first learnt about formulating skincare. Since then I’ve been making variously concoctions over the years, especially when I went to uni in my mid 20’s to study Environmental Scientist and discovered more about sustainability and the environmental impacts of the choices we make.

I found that it was only since I became a mother with a child with reactive eczema that I really created my award winning formulas, that have changed ours and many people’s lives.

Megan (Meg) McFarlane  – Kin Lawyers

Megan (Meg) McFarlane – Kin Lawyers

Meg is one half of the lady lawyer duo at Kin Lawyers with a focus on people and their relationships.

Meg likes: getting to the point of things, visiting her second home of Morocco, marvelling at the insatiable energy of her child, being in a room with cleverer/funnier/kinder people (but reminding herself she’s ok too!), and being home by 8:30pm to watch ABC crime drama (even though everything is on demand now). She will always be down for a 6pm dinner reservation (or better yet, 5pm opening!)

Meg dislikes: writing bios, not being able to read a really good book again “for the first time” after she’s finished it, her email inbox, and anything other than the British method for queuing.
