The Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce's WomanUP program focuses on supporting and inspiring our community's business women. This celebration event kicks off another year of events.
This year, the Chamber is partnering with Buncombe County Schools Foundation in presenting Christine Mann Darden, retired NASA engineer and analyst and one of NASA's "human computers" as portrayed in the recent film Hidden Figures. She will be interviewed by Dr. Darin Waters, assistant professor of history at UNC Asheville.
The keynote speaker, Troylyn Ball, is the founder and owner of Asheville Distilling Company and the maker of award-winning Troy & Sons Whiskey. She will share her story of overcoming personal and financial hardship and finding success through a strong dose of entrepreneurial spirit and perseverance.
