Meet South Australia's new Governor

This month we sat down with our new Governor, Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC. Repeatedly ranked as one of South Australia's most influential people before her appointment, Ms Adamson was a member of the Champions of Change Coalition and Australia’s most senior diplomat. A University of Adelaide economics graduate, international diplomat, political counsellor and mother of four, she has had an illustrious career and is refreshingly humble when talking about her journey to Government House. As North Terrace’s newest resident, Her Excellency has an enviable work ethic. She has also made a series of smart choices throughout her career which have helped her be widely recognised for ground-breaking roles and taking on positions that had previously only been held by men.  After school, Ms Adamson chose to study economics because it caught her imagination. Economics ended up taking her abroad for many years, allowing her to work in an industry that supported her as a female foreign diplomat and also, as a mother. “In the 1980s the study of economics was fundamental to the economic reform underway. So the Commonwealth public service was actively recruiting economists at the time and public service had just become an equal opportunity work environment,” she said.
