Abraham Ronai – Getinge

You want to be a strong collaborator and part of a high-functioning team? Check your ego at the door, readily take on secondary roles, rely on other people’s subject matter expertise, and be willing to stand back to celebrate successes that aren’t yours—even if you contributed to them in some way. This is Abraham Ronai’s […]

Al Stoller – Meruelo Group

The team’s been doing well on the ice, the Arizona Coyotes holding down first place as of early this year in the National Hockey League’s Pacific Division with the 80-game regular season near its halfway point. Not that that should be surprising. The Desert Dogs, as they’re sometimes called, stockpiled premium draft picks over the […]

Diana Ortega – General Motors

At the GM Lansing Delta plant in Delta Township, Michigan, more than 3,000 employees are working together to build thousands of Buick Enclaves and Chevrolet Traverses, move them off the line and to dealer lots throughout the country. These are massive undertakings, entailing millions in research and development—requiring a microscopic eye for detail from all […]

Ellen Ochoa – National Science Board

It’s the kind of question Ellen Ochoa has heard more times than she can count, from fans, press and peers alike: When you first flew into space, saw the earth looming like a huge swirling marble below, more removed from life than you’d ever been before, what did you think about? Those expecting some stirring […]

Juan Salgado – Northrop Grumman

Juan Salgado was eight years old when he moved with his mother from a village in the hills of El Salvador—a place with no running water and minimal electricity—to the town of Coatepeque, about 15 miles from the city of Santa Ana. For Salgado, the change was bittersweet. He missed the pristine beauty of the […]

Louis Terry – BAE Systems Inc.

Picture a room full of engineers and U.S. government stakeholders—the vanguard of the country’s nuclear deterrent program—discussing how to best evaluate and upgrade critical equipment. Within a few moments, they enter a mixed reality environment where they can see system requirements and digital models up close—all on a single collaborative digital screen. Or a field […]

Michael Guiracocha – Ford

He completed an internship with NASA the summer after his junior year of college. Within a month of graduating—the first in his family to do so—he landed as an engineer at Ford Motor Company. Three years later, at the age of 24, he was overseeing all exterior, interior and chassis warranty claims at the company’s […]

Rob Anchondo – Honeywell

As he gazed out at the thousands of youthful faces staring back intently from the audience, Robert Anchondo couldn’t help but marvel at the gravity of it all. Thirty years ago, it might’ve been him out there, listening to an accomplished Hispanic engineer talk about their journey, about hurdles scaled and odds overcome. That’s when […]

Sylvia Acevedo – Girl Scouts of the USA

Not long into her tenure as president and CEO of CommuniCard, Sylvia Acevedo received a phone call from a researcher at Stanford University, where she had received her master’s in engineering two decades earlier. As one of the first Latina students to earn a graduate engineering degree from the prestigious school, Acevedo was asked how, […]
