Event Details

VanWIT is kicking off 2018 with another installation of our Leadership Circle Series, which features senior executives in technology who will share their journey in the industry with the VanWIT community in an intimate setting.

We are excited to welcome Frenny Bawa, who will lead a discussion about transcending gender bias and employing strategies for career progression in the tech industry.


Frenny Bawa is a Business Executive who has had career in technology which spanned over two decades.  She began as a Marketing Manager at a Vancouver start-up and went on to hold senior leadership positions in several companies in the Lower Mainland and abroad.

Over her career, Frenny developed expertise in product marketing, doing business internationally, transforming businesses and developing exponential growth strategies for the companies where she worked.

She led the globalization initiative for Blackberry which expanded the company’s primarily North American foot print into over 175 countries.  Following this business development effort, as Managing Director, she drove market development for BlackBerry in the Middle East, Africa and India. Frenny was recognized by Fortune India as one of the top 10 women in business.

Currently, Frenny serves on Simon Fraser University’s Foundation Board and on the Advisory Committee on TRIUMF (ACOT). On a selective basis she also provides strategic advice to companies.

Frenny holds a BBA from Simon Fraser University and an MBA from McGill University.

Tickets for this event are limited, so please make sure you sign up soon to share refreshments and conversation with Frenny and other VanWIT members!
