{{contact.first_name}} introducing our 2021 Board of Directors

Jan 24, 2021 10:10 pm

G'day


If you're new to Women in Robotics then please allow me to give you a quick overview!


If you're an ally and supporter, welcome! We need you to nominate women for awards, to cite the research of women in robotics, to refuse to be on 'manels', and to champion women in your workplace. Sometimes it's as simple as making sure that women get heard in the meetings.


This newsletter is our primary form of communication with you all, so please share the subscription link: https://sendfox.com/womeninrobotics


We have twitter and instagram @womeninroboticz

We have FB, LI and now Clubhouse Rooms @womeninrobotics

And please send women and supporters to http://womeninrobotics.org


If you're a woman working in robotics - or interested in learning more, welcome! If you haven't received an invitation to our slack community, reach out to andra@womeninrobotics.org


Our local chapters will share event details here, on Slack and on Meetingplace.io and we're going to be forming more local chapters in 2021.

Women in Robotics Melbourne (Australia) are meeting up for the first time in 2021. We have Nicola Kloet joining us to share her experiences with STEM and Robotics, and her passion to help young students gain ground.


Don't let geography be a restriction to networking with amazing ladies! We look forward to meeting you all on January 28th, 5:30 PM to 6:45 PM, Melbourne time. (That's Wednesday Jan 27th 10:30pm if you're in California) Login, engage and be inspired!

Our focus for 2021 is on:

  • Project Inspire - our annual 30 women in robotics you need to know about list, plus regular updates, spotlights, and wikipedia pages for women in robotics.
  • Project Connect - forming new chapters, promoting our online community, and enjoying regular member led activities and events, under a Code of Conduct.
  • Project Advance - piloting a mentoring program, providing educational resources for women in robotics, and improving accountability metrics in our workplaces.

You can nominate other outstanding Women in Robotics and why not share your story for one of our next newsletters in our Women in Robotics Spotlights. We love learning about your achievements and why you love robotics too!


We also thank Sabine Haeurt and Sarah Osentoski for all their work setting up the Women in Robotics organization and we're pleased that they'll be Co-Chairing our new Advisory Board Committee. We have several Committees looking for volunteers if you're interested in getting more involved!



regards, Andra Keay at Women in Robotics
