RAS is pleased to arrange three Luncheon Networking events for our Members attending IROS 2017 in Vancouver, Canada. Space is limited for these popular events. Don't miss the chance to attend either or both because the space has been filled. The Women in Engineering (WIE) luncheon provides an opportunity to foster discussion on the role of women in robotics and automation, inspire girls and promote collaborations and initiatives to advance women in leadership. As the goal for this event is to be more than a lunch for women, but a lunch with women. Therefore, men are more than welcome to participate and enjoy the discussion.
