Uncorked is an upscale networking event attracting local entrepreneurs, business professionals, and leaders from the Greater Regina Area. Hosted on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at Mercedes-Benz Regina, Uncorked aims to inspire through storytelling and casual couch conversation as guest host Lisa Peters asks some of the boldest businesswomen and leaders of the community the most unpredictable and unfiltered questions about business, life, and community.
Featuring Dr. Vianne Timmons, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Regina
Named one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, Dr. Vianne Timmons is a nationally and internationally recognized expert in inclusive education and literacy research.
She has been President of the University of Regina since 2008. As the first female university president in the history of the province of Saskatchewan, she has been a strong advocate for the development of women leaders in Saskatchewan and beyond. For the past decade, she has been the driving force behind the Inspiring Leadership forum, which annually attracts hundreds of participants to the University of Regina for a day-long symposium on women and leadership.
Dr. Timmons was recognized in 2014 with the Senior Women Academic Administrators of Canada’s Recognition Award for promoting and supporting diversity within academic institutions. In 2015, she received the Inter-American Organization for Higher Education’s “Leadership and Influence” award for promoting policies that enhance gender equity. In 2017, she was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada – one of Canada’s highest civilian honours – for her longstanding work in the areas of inclusive education for persons with disabilities, family literacy, and women’s leadership.
In April 2020, she will become President and Vice-Chancellor of Memorial University of Newfoundland.
