Mission Statement

The focus of the Women in Engineering group within ASHRAE is to facilitate the retention of women working in the built environment by encouraging opportunities for professional development, expanding leadership skills, and creating a network of women supporting women. We strive to unite women from various occupations including engineering, construction, project management, property development & ownership, equipment sales & manufacturing, architecture and more. We hope to foster mentoring relationships among these professionals to create a network of women supporting women in the Greater Houston area.


WiA will hold networking happy hours and luncheons throughout the year. The events are casual format with drinks and appetizers provided by our generous sponsors. Guests are encouraged to bring business cards, network with attendees and form relationships in order to foster a sense of community among the women in ASHRAE and the Houston building industry. All women, as well as men, are encouraged to attend WiA events; you do not need to be a member or ASHRAE or the Houston ASHRAE chapter to participate.
