WiRE Networking Meet-ups

Compelling Presenters. Welcoming Environment. Women Only

Join us on Tuesday February 27th in Calgary for the next WiRE Networking Meetup. Please note the 6 pm start time!

WiRE meet-ups present a welcoming and casual opportunity to meet peers, share ideas and opportunities, and educate colleagues about projects and initiatives of interest to the group. All women working in a field related to renewable energy are invited, as are students and developing professionals who are looking for perspectives on joining the renewable energy sector. Light refreshments are served.

Guest Speaker: Honourable Shannon Phillips, MLA for Lethbridge-West, Minister of Environment and Parks, Minister Responsible for the Climate Change Office (Alberta)


Shannon Phillips was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, representing the constituency of Lethbridge-West, on May 5, 2015. On May 24, 2015, Ms. Phillips was sworn in to cabinet as Minister of Environment and Parks and as Minister Responsible for the Status of Women. On February 2, 2016, Ms. Phillips was named the Minister Responsible for the Climate Change Office.

Prior to serving with the Legislative Assembly, she worked with the Alberta Federation of Labour as a policy analyst for five years. She also spent five years as a member of the board of directors for the Womanspace Resource Centre, a nonprofit organization that provides resources, referrals and education to the community and to individual women.

In 1999 she received a bachelor of arts with honours in political science and in 2002 she completed her master of arts, both at the University of Alberta. Together with her two sons Ms. Phillips resides in Lethbridge, Alberta.

We hope to see you there!
