The States of Matter Podcast

Institute of Refrigeration

The Women in Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Network of the Institute of Refrigeration brings you a podcast where women with careers in engineering discuss the opportunities and challenges they have encountered. During light-hearted and informative conversations they will share their experiences and knowledge to support and encourage other women working in the field. They will address some of the many preconceptions about working in a ”male-dominated field” and hopefully encourage the next generation of engineers.

She shares hints and tips on managing those inner voices and changing behaviours that may hold you back.
