Honeywell celebrates diversity across the workplace, encouraging employees to bring their whole selves to work. One way it recently put this into action was through the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Honeywell partnered with the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) Student Chapter at Georgia Institute of Technology to host a workshop for students entitled, 'Shaping the Future of Your Career'.

SHPE is a student run organization that seeks to empower Hispanics to fulfill their potential and teach other communities about Latin culture, with a focus on advancing the careers of Hispanic STEM students. Throughout the Honeywell workshop, employees talked about embracing their Latin culture in their careers. Lily Bissett, Director of User Experience Design and Diblik Holman, Senior User Experience Designer, shared their experiences of working in a tech environment and the impact their work makes for Honeywell’s Aerospace and Connected Building business groups.
