Debra Shojaee – Branch Leader, Kirby Jandakot
How long have you been with Kirby and what do you love most about your role with Kirby?
I have been at Kirby for just over eight years, including two blocks of Maternity leave. What I really love about my role is being able to interact with a wide variety of people who are passionate about the industry we work in. Also learning about the HVAC&R trade and challenging myself every day.
What does International Womens Day mean to you?
International women's day serves as a very important reminder to the world how far women have come, but also how far we have to go towards gender equity in the workplace.
How can this year's theme of "Choose to Challenge" be applied to our daily lives?
We should always uplift, support and encourage each other to speak up and be the best version of ourselves.
Why should other young women join the HVACR industry?
Not only will it bring more gender equity to the workplace, but it's also a great industry to work in with so many opportunities to learn and grow.
