Our Vice President of Business Development, Lianna Mah, has been selected this year as one of the recipients of the UBC Faculty of Applied Science’s Dean’s Medal of Distinction. The medal recognizes “…individuals who have brought high honour to the Faculty and/or who have made long standing/significant contributions to advance its vision, mission and mandate.”
Since earning both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from UBC, Lianna remains an active member of the UBC community. She is a guest lecturer for the Faculty of Applied Science and has been a tireless supporter of diversity initiatives, including the Together WiE Can initiative for Women in Engineering, the EGBC's Women in Engineering and Geoscience Division, and the EGBC Foundation’s Sheri Plewes Scholarship for Women in Engineering.
Lianna adds, "I’m really honoured to be among other recipients whom I hugely admire, including Peter Taylor, Elizabeth Croft, and Colin Smith."
The award ceremony was supposed to be held on April 22, 2020, but has been postponed to the fall due to COVID-19.
