About

Women in Robotics is a global community supporting women who work in robotics and women who are interested in working in robotics, as entrepreneurs, industry and academia. Our activities include local networking events, outreach, education, mentoring and the promotion of positive role models in robotics, both in research, industry, entrepreneurship and just plain fun.

We started as a grassroots community to support women in robotics across the globe, who wanted to see more women thrive. In 2020 we formed an official 501c3 non-profit organization.

We are committed to championing the women within the robotics community. We are focusing on three projects in 2021 to help women both newly in the field and career veterans. These are Project Inspire, Project Connect, and Project Advance.
