FIRST Ladies is an international community for FTC/FRC teams who are dedicated to promoting gender inclusion, collaboration, and kindness in FIRST Robotics. We believe that inclusion in robotics can only be achieved if everyone uses their platform to spread encouragement, and that underrepresented voices should be amplified. We are here to bring teams and individuals together so we can all grow our outreach programs and impact both our local communities and FIRST programs all over the world.
