Over the last year, the Women in HVACR organization received dozens of applications from energetic and ambitious young women who are just getting started in the industry, as well as highly qualified and inspirational mentors who are looking to pass on their wisdom and years of experience to the next generation of women in HVACR. As an organization, we are so happy to be able to provide a way to connect women to establish vial, productive and fulfilling mentor-mentee relationships!
The WHVACR Mentorship Committee uses information collected from an online mentorship application form to identify mentor-mentee matches based on industry segment, personal interests and geographical locations. In the first year of the program, we matched dozens of applicants, introducing matches by email, phone or other methods to get the mentorship process underway!
Over the next year, we will continue to provide mentor-mentee matching services as well as provide resources, support and gather feedback from active matches on how to improve the program. We currently have several mentors who are awaiting their mentees, so if you’ve ever considered reaching out to a mentor for advice, now is a great time to apply!
The WHVACR Mentorship Program, is still seeking both mentors and mentees from all aspects of the industry. Anyone interested in participating either as a mentor or mentee (or perhaps both), should fill out an application online, or contact the WHVACR Mentorship and Education Committee by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
