Pirro Convention Center at Oncenter, in Syracuse. The luncheon is the region’s largest annual gathering of business and community leaders.

As part of the leadership team at Honeywell, Adams has a unique perspective on the strategies and forward-looking approaches required for businesses to excel in the global marketplace. She is responsible for managing all of the company’s legal affairs, as well as government relations; health, safety, environment, product stewardship and sustainability; and global security.

Honeywell has a global workforce of approximately 130,000 in about 70 countries.

Adams will share her experience leading Honeywell’s Onondaga Lake cleanup and restoration efforts for which she has had responsibility since joining the company in 2003, as well as insight into the company’s strong global growth strategy and its commitment to corporate citizenship.
 
“Honeywell has been at the center of one of this community’s most ambitious undertakings – the cleanup of Onondaga Lake. We are excited to have Ms. Adams share her perspective on Honeywell’s commitment to the developing collaborative solutions that helped restore our lake to its rightful place as a remarkable community asset,” said Robert Simpson, president, CenterState CEO. “As we look through the lens of history, this project serves as reminder, and a model, for what can be achieved when we come together with a bold, long-term, vision and take action to break through our most pressing challenges to drive transformative outcomes.”
 
Adams’ prior roles at Honeywell include serving on the Performance Materials and Technologies leadership team, one of Honeywell's strategic business groups.
Before joining Honeywell, Adams was a partner at Sidley Austin LLP in New York City. Earlier in her career, she served in roles as law clerk for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Supreme Court of the United States; trial attorney for the United States Department of Justice, Appellate Section, Environment and Natural Resources division; and law clerk for Stephen Breyer, then Chief Justice United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and now Justice of the Supreme Court.
