“There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”
In a modern society, it can be difficult for young women to find role models within male dominated industries. Between the 6th and 7th of March, Aubot had the pleasure of attending events celebrating International Womens Day hosted by Business Chicks and Cisco Live! respectively. Our founder, Marita Cheng delivered inspiring speeches detailing her journey as a female engineer and the difficulties faced by women in male dominated industries. As an audience, it was incredibly motivating to see so many women overcome adversity and excel within their field. We believe that such events are a great step forward to encouraging more intelligent young women to have the confidence to pursue their desired careers.
In the first weekend of March, Aubot was an exhibitor at Scienceworks’ Robotica: Festival of Futurism event. The event showcased a number of companies and organisations who are driving significant innovations in Australia’s robotics industry. The festival was highly successful in attracting a large number of families and young people, with many taking our Teleport Dave for a test drive! As a team, it was greatly rewarding to witness so many children become enthusiastic about the robotics industry, it is our hope that these young minds become future innovators and robot makers!
