ASHRAE members discuss cultural, racial, and language barriers still appearing in the workplace and the steps that can be taken to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
At this month’s membership meeting, the Illinois Chapter of ASHRAE will be continuing a discussion it began a year ago surrounding diversity in the workplace. The discussion will include personal accounts from ASHRAE panelists, including ESD Automation Engineer Yvette Anguiano. She will be discussing professional DEI goals she has been pursuing including building a leadership pipeline for diverse employees, identifying needs and desires to retain these employees, reassessing recruiting strategies to increase engagement with diverse candidates, and finding ways to make an impact on our community.
Registration for the free virtual event taking place on Tuesday, January 18 at 4:30 p.m. CT is open.
