Congratulations to Rosina Di Maria, Chair of Woods Bagot’s Adelaide Studio, who has been nominated for ‘ 2023 Woman of the Year Awards’ in the Rising Star category.

Organised by The Advertiser, Sunday Mail and Sky City Adelaide, the award recognizes inspirational South Australian women who go to extraordinary lengths to advocate for and positively promote the advancement of gender equality. Previous women to earn this accolade include Professor Nicola Spurrier.

Rosina’s nomination acknowledges her ongoing contribution to architecture and design in South Australia, her contribution to community and industry groups, and local leadership of what is now a global business founded in Adelaide more than 150 years ago.

Her work within the arts and culture sector is extensive, from writing business cases for Government to designing and delivering notable projects such as the refurbishment works at the National Gallery of Australia. “Listening is more than hearing – it requires a dedication to decoding, to nurturing, to uncovering deeper meaning, and an investment of time,” says Di Maria.

The Woman of the Year will be announced on March 6th in Adelaide.
