Honeywell is a proud sponsor of Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (“IGED”), which is an event designed to offer opportunities for high school girls to learn more about engineering disciplines and careers in various engineering fields. In 2018, 50 Honeywell women served as mentors for the event, which was attended by 500 girls.
Each attendee is paired with a mentor who is a professional engineer in the Kansas City community. Students experience a combination of hands-on activities and education about the field of engineering in general. Girls participate in an industry fair, a university fair, a college panel, a session with a keynote speaker, and an engineering discipline fair.
