Mandy Balak is the Founder and CEO of The Ace Class, a Canadian media and events company rooted in its intention of changing the way women connect with other women. ACE is an acronym for activate, cultivate, and empower. These principles guide the movement in its mission of activating meaningful conversation, creating community and connection, and encouraging women to empower one another to lead their best lives. Since its launch, Balak has expanded The Ace Class to six major Canadian cities - Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Toronto.
Balak’s work-life philosophy is founded on the trifecta of working hard, empowering women along the way and providing meaningful and interactive experiences. When she’s not activating events and strategizing, Balak enjoys sweating it out in a spin studio, indulging in a glass of bourbon and traveling the globe.
