World Refrigeration Day 2021
A series of webinars focusing on the "Cool Careers" in refrigeration will be organised this year to celebrate World Refrigeration Day on June 26.
Cooling Champions: Cool Careers for a Better World
This year, seven organisations will partner with World Refrigeration Day to raise awareness among students and young professionals of the interesting career opportunities in fields relying on refrigeration technology.
“Partnering with these organisations enables the refrigeration industry to reach out globally, with particular emphasis on developing countries, to expand the workforce that supports life-giving and society-dependent technologies,” said Steve Gill of World Refrigeration Day.
Webinars to celebrate “Cool Careers”!
Organised as part of the day’s 2021 campaign under the theme “Cooling Champions: Cool Careers for a Better World", the webinars, to be held in June, will be conducted by groups whose networks reach into developed and developing nations.
Each campaign partner will target career opportunities with webinars in the languages common within their networks, with the objective to inspire students and those early in their career path to join the more than 15 million people worldwide currently employed in the refrigeration sector.
Special emphasis will be given to sectors that are less visible such as the Cold Chain, Refrigerant Management, Indoor Air-Quality, Sustainability, Heat Pumps, and Not-in-Kind Technologies, and gender equality and promoting women in cooling careers will be highlighted as a key factor for diversity.
