Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion


Building a stronger culture of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in ASHRAE will help our Society be more creative, innovative, and resilient, drive group performance and improve member and staff retention. The aim is to remove barriers experienced by underrepresented groups and strongly articulate the need for participation of those groups in ASHRAE. The Society’s call to action will start with ASHRAE’s membership and staff, extend through the HVAC&R industry and engineering profession and finally to promoting STEM education programs to children, schools and educators.
