Breaking Free and Stepping Outside the Box

Program organized by The Mawji Centre for New Venture and Student Entrepreneurship

12:00:00 - 13:00:00

After completing her business degree and working in a corporate job, Jess walked away from it all to pursue her passion of entrepreneurship in the trades. She started her journey by pursuing a career as a heavy equipment operator. After bulky, ill-fitting coveralls caused her to have some near misses in her job as a heavy equipment operator, Jess Black decided to take matters into her own hands and create a line of clothing for women working in heavy-duty industries like oil and gas, and construction.

Knowing that active wear is the preferred material worn as base layers on job sites, she set out to create a line that was also safe.

In this session, Jess will share her story and what she believes it takes to step outside the box and realize your dreams as a female entrepreneur.

This is a virtual event and will be hosted on-line.
