Women in Mission Critical Operations (“WiMCO") is a community within the 7x24 Exchange Atlanta Chapter designed for specific outreach to women in the industry. Our mission is to encourage strengthened engagement and participation of women as members, presenters, and attendees of Chapter events. A primary focus is placed on supporting the efforts of the Education Committee to market and recruit women into the MCO curriculum and the industry as a whole by attending job fairs, speaking engagements and promotional efforts via website and video.
- Encourage greater participation, visibility and leadership from our female members
- Educate and encourage additional women to enter the MCO industry.
- Provide targeted industry networking opportunities for women.
Member of the Month
Fire Protection/Mechanical Engineer
Ashely works as a fire protection / mechanical engineer for Morrison Hershfield in the Mission Critical Facilities Group. She started working in mission critical at the beginning of 2021. And her favorite part of working in the mission critical industry is the appreciation for forward thinking to produce the best designs for our clients and the community of peers that promote continued learning. If she did not work in the mission critical industry, she would still like to be a design or project engineer. She can’t really imagine working in a field that wasn’t related to design and or construction.
