HONEYWELL'S BACHMAN NAMED TO YWCA'S ACADEMY OF WOMEN ACHIEVERS

 NEW YORK, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Karen Bachman, Honeywell vice president of communications, today was named to the YWCA's Academy of Women Achievers, one of the country's most prestigious groups of professional women.
 Bachman was inducted into the Academy at the YWCA of the City of New York's annual Salute to Women Achievers luncheon. This year's event marks the 20th anniversary of the Salute.
 The YWCA of the City of New York created the Academy of Women Achievers in 1976 to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of women in business, labor, education, non-profit organizations, government and the arts. The Academy comprises professional women who have demonstrated, through their leadership and example, the value of women in the work force.
 This year's class of 124 achievers will join more than 1,600 women who have been inducted into the Academy since its inception.
 "Karen's outstanding work at Honeywell and her extensive involvement in her local community make her a superb example of what we define as an 'achiever,'" said Vivian Manning-Fox, executive director of the YWCA of the City of New York. "Her accomplishments illustrate just how much women can achieve today."
 Bachman joined Honeywell in 1964. Since then, she has served as both manager and director of corporate public relations, both director and vice president of investor relations, and vice president of public and financial relations. She received a bachelor's degree, magna cum laude, in Russian from the University of Minnesota and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa.
 Bachman chairs the board of the Minnesota Opera Company and serves on the boards of the Girl Scout Council of Greater Minneapolis, the Guthrie Theater, the Minnesota Women's Economic Roundtable and the World Press Institute. She also is a trustee of the Honeywell Foundation and a volunteer for the United Way of Minneapolis.
