Equalities Committee


Welcome to the Equalities Committee!



The Equalities Committee aims to help advance and encourage women and minorities to find and grow in their career in building simulation and to encourage women and minorities to remain in and advance within that career.

If you are interested in getting involved please fill out the contact us form in the heading above, we would love to have you with us.


Equalities Committee Statement:

America has always encouraged the best and the brightest from around the world to further the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The building simulation industry is no different, we have been lucky to have been at the forefront of many innovations and have members from all backgrounds contributing significantly to our success. IBPSA-USA would like to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all the members of its community and state unequivocally that all are welcome, always, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, or country of origin.


What We Do:


Some of the projects we are working on include:

  • Data Collection of IBPSA Demographics (2016 to current)
  • Launching Pilot Mentorship Program (2017 to current)
  • Providing Resources to Members through media (on-going)
