The International Network for Women in Cooling (INWIC), an initiative established last year to advance the engagement of women, promote career opportunities, and increase their overall participation in the refrigeration, air-conditioning, and heat pumps (RACHP) sector, has officially launched its website .
“I personally would like to invite all women working in the cooling sector to join INWIC and become part of our global community. As a collective, we have the potential to achieve remarkable feats,” said INWIC president, Colleen Keyworth in a media release.
Women who are working or studying in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors are encouraged to apply to INWIC through the member level of membership.
Members receive benefits, such as access to a private forum where women can engage with one another and discuss their experiences and challenges of working in the heat pump, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC/R) industries and an upcoming free mentoring programme.
In addition to women in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors, other individuals who are interested in supporting this initiative can also become members through the affiliates level of membership.
HVACR associations, societies, and other not-for-profit entities with a role in women’s career development may apply for partner membership.
Additionally, businesses, corporations, and industry associations and coalitions may apply to become industry supporters.
INWIC is led by the World Refrigeration Day (WRD) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) OzonAction as the joint Secretariat, in cooperation with a highly-reputed group of founding partners.
