Women in RACHP
​The Institute of Refrigeration is launching a new network to promote Women in RACHP, with the support of ACR Journal, to coincide with National Women in Engineering Day on 23rd June.

​The network will launch with a webinar talk by Catarina Marques MInstR based on research carried out by Catarina and Ina Colombo MInstR of the International Institute of Refrigeration as part of a Women in Refrigeration workshop, which looked at global skills shortages in engineering and technical staff, the growing demand for refrigeration professionals and opportunities to increase representation of women in this field. It will be opened and chaired by Steve Gill, IOR President.  

​The new network will be open to anyone (male or female) working in any RACHP related role such as service & maintenance, design, research, engineering, science, sales, administration, marketing, or training. You do not have to be an IOR member to take part and the invitation is open to anyone interested in promoting and supporting professional opportunities for women in RACHP.
