Awards adds special Womens’ category

WOMEN-IN-RACHP_WEBUK: Supporting efforts to attract more women into the acr industry, a special Women in RACHP category has been added to the National ACR and Heat Pump Awards.

The Women in RACHP Award is a first for the National ACR and Heat Pump Awards, which takes place in January 2017. The announcement comes soon after the National Women in Engineering Day, which was on 23rd June 2016 which celebrated the top 50 women in engineering in Britain.



The ACR Journal, organiser of the National ACR and Heat Pump Awards, has been at the forefront of promoting women in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry and has been working with the IoR to promote the Women in RACHP networking group.

The winner of the Women in RACHP award will be announced at the Awards on January 26, 2017, at the Town Hall in Birmingham.
