Black Tie Affair 2016

On January 22nd, 2016 UA-WiSE proudly presented their second annual Black Tie Affair! Selling out 200 tickets, this year featured the acclaimed TEDx Speaker and Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award winner, Zoe Yujnovich, Executive Vice President, Heavy Oil, Shell Canada. The event focused on entrepreneurship and innovation as Zoe made her name as she moved from being a materials engineer to president and being appointed the first female Chair of the Mining Association of Canada!

I encourage you to look at your own life experiences: What adventures have awakened you? What has defined you as an individual?
