24th Towards Autonomous Robotics Systems (TAROS) Conference

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


A roundtable event, discussing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the context of Robotics and Engineering facilitated by Women* in Robotics UK. Open to all, this event aimed to foster open discussions through small focus groups. Ella Maule and Isabelle Ormerod (Women in Robotics UK Leads) chaired the session aimed to address several key questions:
- Marginalised groups are over-stretched to represent EDI in the robotics space, how can we mitigate this?
- How can we/ should we utilise safe spaces in male-dominated spaces such as robotics?
- Are hiring quotas a necessary/just tool to promote EDI in robotics?
- What does community look like to you? What other groups should we collaborate with?
