As part of its longstanding effort to foster inclusivity and create an environment where women can excel in the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) industry, Bryant Heating & Cooling is holding its annual Women in HVAC event this week. Bryant is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies (NYSE: UTX).
The event, which has tripled in size since 2015, welcomed 160 women from the United States, Canada and Mexico to the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort for three days of leadership and business development training, best practice sharing and fellowship. Women were nominated to attend the three-day workshop from throughout the Bryant organization as well as from its distributor and dealer channel. “This event is an invaluable opportunity for many of the women who represent the Bryant brand to convene and build upon our individual and collective strengths. There’s an incredible amount of talent in this group and it’s a wonderful opportunity to share and learn,” said Laura Williams, channel marketing manager, Bryant. “This is a date we’ve had circled on our calendar for a long time and we anticipate building on our longstanding relationships and forging new bonds.” The event features programs on personal and professional development as well as networking and focuses on growing the Bryant brand by enhancing the vital business relationships that many of the women have. “This event is unique in our industry and illustrates Bryant’s commitment to developing a world-class team from the factory to our channel partners,” said Matthew Pine, vice president, marketing, Bryant. “I applaud the women who make this important event a reality and who work tirelessly all year to grow the Bryant brand. They are among our most-committed Bryant supporters and the brand is well served by their passion and skill.” Please visit www.bryant.com to learn more about our heating and cooling legacy and visit our Facebook page to learn more about our commitment to home comfort.
