A few years back, I wrote a column about "Women in the Hvac Industry." This year, I have noticed a few articles being published about introducing engineering to girls and women who have succeeded in engineering, construction and facility management, etc. Still, there continues to be a void in this industry both on the consulting side, as well as the operation side of the building industry. With engineering firms, builders, and support services struggling to find exceptional people for their respective companies, there seems to be an untapped resource remaining for the hvac industry.
While women are now working their way up the ladder of success, the following opportunities are still looking for "a few good men AND WOMEN." I look at our own company and see that half the success of our business has been through the performance of women in finance, project and program management, engineering, facility support, senior staff, and corporate management.
