In the bustling world of industrial construction, Annette Pogas advocates for change and progress for women. As a Project Manager at Renewal SA, Annette navigates the complexities of the sector with finesse, leading projects that shape the very fabric of the South Australian community.

For Annette, International Women's Day isn't just a date on the calendar; it's a profound moment of reflection. "It's a day to reflect on the changes that women have made in the world, both personally and professionally," Annette said. "It's a day to take stock and think about what changes we're going to make going forward."

Understanding the power of diversity in decision-making, Annette believes "the more people at the table, the broader world you're going to be thinking about when making decisions”.

Her journey through the construction industry has been marked by a blend of courage and opportunity. "I've been very fortunate," she acknowledged. "I've had multiple opportunities to work interstate, in big and small practices, on large projects and small projects."

Yet, it's her return to South Australia that fills her with a sense of purpose. "I'm really glad to be back now, using those skills on some really interesting long-term projects for the state."

Annette's aspirations reach beyond her own achievements; they extend to future generations. "My hope is that we don't have to have this conversation too much more," she said. "That my daughters will just be people in the global world."

Annette Pogas embodies the essence of International Women's Day – a celebration of women's achievements, a call to action for gender equality, and a testament to the undeniable power of investing in women.
