Female Aerospace Engineer Honored Twice
September 16, 2014
Robin Stubenhofer, Honeywell’s Vice President of Aerospace Engineering, was recently recognized by two organizations for her leadership as a female engineer and impact on the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) community.
The Kansas City Business Journal awarded Stubenhofer with the Women Who Mean Business award, which, for 15 years, has recognized the area's leading businesswomen. She was also recognized with the Central Exchange's Groundbreaker Award given to women with 20+ years in a STEM field that have made significant contributions to the STEM community.
Stubenhofer has a challenging technical role at Honeywell as the engineering lead for a mission-critical business, but takes time in her busy schedule to mentor others. Everyone faces challenges in their professional careers, however, being a female engineer in a male-dominated workforce has created many “learning” opportunities for Stubenhofer.
“By some estimates, women account for only 10 percent of the engineering workforce,” Stubenhofer said. “Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate to have mentors to help me grow and develop in my career. Now, I am in a position to pass along that good advice to the growing number of women in the engineering field.”
