NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, November 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In perhaps the first of its kind, a single source information exchange for, to, and about Women in Advance Technologies (WAT) was announced today at the Tech-Up for Women Conference in New York.
As envisioned by its creator JoAnn Laing, chairperson of the National Robotics Education Foundation, (www.the-nref.org) participation in this database is free and open to all women engaged in AI, robotics, and other advanced technologies.
“We saw a need for a single source to enable women leading the technological explosion we are seeing every day to exchange ideas, inspire others, engage in public events, expand their career paths, and receive wider public notice,” Laing said at the event.
“Populated with self-identified industry leaders, the WAT database provides a single source for women to find each other for networking, explore new employment opportunities, be available as possible speakers, board members and mentors,” she added.
Laing pointed out there is no charge to be included in this database. It takes just two minutes to enter an individual’s information; and participants opt as to whether their information in part or whole is published.
Laing notes an individual’s information and selections can be updated, changed at any time by contacting wateditor@the-nref.org.
Laing also explained that funding for the database is from contributors and corporations; and it will be administered by the National Robotics Education Foundation.
