--- Description---
This is a _mixed-audience_, women-only speakers workshop with the goals of:
(1) raising visibility of women in robotics by presenting invited talks by
women that are leaders in the field, (2) strengthening the community and
providing an opportunity for networking by providing an event dedicated to
women in robotics, and (3) fostering mentorship of junior female
researchers via a poster session, a panel, and travel awards.
