RAS Member in the News Celebrates Women's History Month


Karinne Ramirez

IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Women in Engineering (RAS WIE) Chair Karinne Ramirez Amaro spoke at this year's Camp Vera. Camp Vera is a weekend packed with workshops and lectures from women in industry in Sweden -named after Sweden's first female engineer, Vera Sandberg. The project is focused on getting more people who identify as girls or non-binaries to be interested in technical subjects and increase awareness of the career opportunities that open up with an education in Automation and Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Information Technology and Medical Technology. 

Additionally, Amaro was interviewed by El Financiero, discussing her important leadership positions within RAS. Amaro's thoughts on RAS WIE-“I have formed an excellent international work team. We also have more than 20 members of different nationalities, genders, ages and academic positions. The main objective of our committee is to create initiatives that help improve diversity in work teams. We are a new team and quite motivated by all the diversity challenges that we want to address in the coming years. On February 16, 2022 we had our first work meeting via Zoom. As a result we have planned different events, for example an event within the activities of ICRA in Philadelphia, USA in May. Another event at the CASE conference in Mexico in August 2022."
