Team bonding and employee engagement is vitally important to ADC & ADC-CM. We have always valued having our management and staff engage together in fun, exciting and enriching ways. This past weekend, our staff was invited to participate in a Virtual Wine & Chocolate Weekend Kickoff. The companies created a wine & chocolate event featuring wines from Livermore winery, Wente Vineyards and local San Jose chocolatier, Mariette Chocolates. Guests received kits including a bottle of Wente wine, a box of gourmet truffles and food & chocolate pairing suggestions. The staff was joined by sommelier and food & wine expert/critic/podcaster, Max Trujillo for a tasting and Q&A session. After a little wine lesson, guests enjoyed time connecting with their colleagues and kicking off the weekend together.
















Thursday night, ASHRAE’s San Jose Chapter brought together ladies from across the HVAC and Engineering community in their virtual event, Women in ASHRAE Terrarium Workshop. ADC was proud to have a woman from our team participate. Approximately 30 women gathered on a Zoom meeting to network, socialize and learn to build mini terrariums. The social event celebrated diversity in ASHRAE and helped connect female engineers in the industry. They brought in a plant specialist from Succulence, a local San Francisco shop focused on unique plants, supplies, terrariums and vertical gardens. Prior to the Zoom, each participant received a kit with all the supplies needed to make their own mini succulent terrarium. Together the women learned about these unique plants, proper drainage & watering, and shared an evening of conversation and laughter while creating a unique piece for their homes. We are grateful for events like this that offer the opportunity to build relationships and support the women in the engineering fields.
