Volunteers Needed: Women in ASHRAE Committee Members

An Exciting New Committee

At the 2018 Winter Conference in Chicago, Members’ Council approved Women in ASHRAE (WiA) as an official chapter-level committee.  This vote recognizes the importance of WiA alongside standing committees like Membership Promotion, Research Promotion, Student Activities, and YEA and puts forth a challenge to all Chapters to start the initiative in their communities.

Our Mission

The mission of the Women in ASHRAE (WiA) committee is to promote the addition and retention of women in the built environment by encouraging opportunities for professional development and leadership. We strive to unite women from various occupations including engineering, construction, project management, property development & ownership, equipment sales & manufacturing, architecture and more. We hope to foster mentoring relationships among these professions to create a network of women supporting women in our Region.
