There would also be a special feature on Grenadian females involved in RAC. The feature presentation would be delivered by President of the Caribbean ASHRAE Chapter, Mr. Dev Maharaj. Other presentations would be delivered by the National Ozone Officer of Grenada and a representative of the Grenada Refrigeration, AirConditioning and Ventilating Association (GRAVA).
Cooling Champions: A Series Featuring Women in the Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Sector in Grenada.
Series Launch Date: Thursday June 24th, 2021
Cooling Champions is Part II of an initiative of the National Ozone Unit (NOU), Grenada to further recognize and appreciate women that are involved in the refrigeration and air-conditioning sector in Grenada.
Part 1 of this initiative started three years ago in 2018 under the tagline “Keep Cool and #watchmework” where seventeen women involved in all aspects of RAC in Grenada were presented with special recognition awards – ten (10) of whom were active technicians in the field.
The series “#CoolingChampions” would be launched on June 24th, 2021, as part of the NOU’s activities to celebrate World Refrigeration Day 2021, #WREFD21. According to National Ozone Officer, Mr. Leslie Smith, “the series is essentially a “Cool Chat” with women in the RAC sector and would feature a profile of them and highlights of their work in the field – their stories, experiences, challenges and successes”. Ten (10) female technicians would be featured over a four-week period on the NOU’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages
