Honeywell's Elizabeth Bierman Honored by Moves Power Women
November 16, 2016
Bierman, the only woman in the technology field, was honored for her commitment to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, her leadership of the Society of Women Engineers (FY15), and her unwavering commitment to encouraging young women to embrace the engineering profession. She joined Christine Duffy, President, Carnival Cruises; Shelley Reynolds, Vice President, Amazon; Dawn Zier, CEO Nutrisystem; and Maria Arias, Vice President, Comcast, among others. The event was hosted by Cobie Smulders, Ray Liotta, and David Oyelowo.
In accepting her award Bierman said, “Being honored is another reminder of the role we as women and engineers play in the world around us, and it shows thousands of young engineers pursuing their degrees and dreams that the world is ready and needs more of them. Women have increased their numbers in many male dominated professions such as law and medicine, but the number of women in engineering in the U.S. has not increased since the early 2000s. It remains stagnant at about 12 percent,” she added.
Bierman also talked about working for Honeywell and the Company's commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce and to emphasizing the important role that women have in engineering and technology. Honeywell has a solid plan for hiring, retaining, and promoting women and is committed to building deep management bench strength, which includes our top female talent so that we continue to evolve our organization for the better over the long-term.
