In cooperation with Women In Design (WID), the women of Ring & DuChateau gathered for a photo to celebrate International Women’s Day, March 8, 2020. The photo was posted by WID on social media as part of a collection of women in the design workplace, which of course includes our team in the MEP building systems design industry.

“When I go to WID meetings, I see a lot of architects and contractors but I don’t often see many MEP or lighting designers. This is a great opportunity to recognize the many women in these fields,” said Ring & DuChateau Associate/Lighting Group Manager Holly Blomquist, who is also a WID member.

This year WID also requested that photos submitted include the number of women firms have added over the past year. In 2019, Ring & DuChateau added six women to the team.
