The long term goal of the Women in Robotics workshop series is to reduce the gender gap by increasing the number of women in robotics. The workshops are designed for a mixed audience (male participants are welcome!) and to highlight the work of successful female roboticists. The fourth Women in Robotics workshop aims to: (1) raise visibility of women in robotics, (2) strengthen the community of female roboticists and provide an opportunity for networking, (3) foster mentorship of junior researchers. The workshop features two keynote lectures by women who are leaders in their fields, invited talks by early career academics, a panel on reinventing career paths, and poster presentations by junior researchers selected for travel awards.
