Robin Stubenhofer Named 2014 Woman Who Means Business
On August 1, an elite group of women from across the spectrum of industries in Kansas City were honored as the 2014 class of Women Who Mean Business. Among the 25 female business leaders is Robin Stubenhofer, Honeywell’s Vice President of Engineering in Kansas City.
The Kansas City Business Journal began the program 15 years ago to recognize and help link the area's leading businesswomen. Judges consider applicants' past accomplishments, plans to grow their companies and community involvement.
Stubenhofer has a challenging technical role as the Engineering lead for a mission-critical business but she 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 created many “learning” opportunities for Stubenhofer.
“By some estimates, women account for only 10 percent of the engineering workforce,” she 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.”
A long time Honeywell employee and Kansas Citian, she is a well-respected business leader and strong advocate for math and science education in the community. Her involvement is widespread – from Science Pioneers to the KC STEM Alliance, she serves as a role model for young women interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
“I am proud to be part of an organization that values community outreach,” she noted. "In my role, I inspire our employees to donate their time to get students excited about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.”
In total, Honeywell employees in Kansas City contribute more than $500,000 in donations to area charities and log more than 20,000 volunteer hours.
