#BalanceforBetter

“On March 8, International Women’s Day, the Bristol Robotics Laboratory & West of England Robotics Network  will host a seminar on the gender dimension. Addressing the gender dimension in research and innovation ensures that researchers question gender norms and stereotypes and take into account the evolving needs and social roles of women and men. The seminar will include talks on “Gender and Assistive Robots – Design and User Perceptions” by Prof Praminda Caleb-Solly, “Women in Robotics” by Dr Sabine Hauert and Dr Antonia Tzemanaki, “Athena Swan” by Dr Mark Hansen and a panel discussion on “Tools to build a feminist tech future” moderated by Marta Palau Franco.
