50 Women Robotics You Should Know About 2022

our Women in robots The list celebrated its 10th anniversary this year and we are pleased to introduce you to “50 Women in Robotics You Should Know” as we also celebrate Ada Lovelace Day. We have now identified over 300 women and non-binary people who have made significant contributions to robotics since the list began in 2013. This year our 50 come from robotics companies (small and large), self-driving car companies, governments, research organizations, and the media. The list covers all over the world, with the selectees holding nationalities from the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Australia, China, Turkey, India and Kenya. A number of the women come from influential companies with household names such as NASA, ABB, GE, Toyota and the Wall Street Journal. As the number of women on the list increases, so does the combined global impact of their efforts, increasing the visibility of women in the field who might not otherwise be recognized. We publish this list to overcome the unconscious perception that women do not make significant contributions. We encourage you to use our lists to help find women in keywords, committees, and interviews, cite their work, and include them in the curriculum.

The role models represented by these 50 women are varied, ranging from honorary to early career stage. important role model. Countess Ada Lovelace, the world’s first exceptional computer programmer and mathematician, faced an uphill battle in the days when women were not encouraged to pursue a career in science. Fast forward 200 years and there are still enough women in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). One of the main reasons is obvious: there are no visible female models, and so we continue to manage our Women Robot Image Challenge, to showcase real women making real robots. Women in STEM fields should be equally represented in conferences, keynotes, magazine covers, or technology-related stories. Although this is beginning to change, the change is not happening fast enough. You can help. Spread the word and use this resource to inspire others to consider a career in robotics. As you will see, there are many different ways in which the women we meet make a difference.

We hope these profiles will inspire you, and if you want to work in robotics as well, please join us at Women in robots. We are now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, but even so, this publication would not have been possible without the hard work of volunteers and the Women in Robotics Board of Directors.
