For Women by Women

About Women And Drones

Women And Drones is the leading membership organization dedicated to driving excellence in the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) industry by achieving equity and participation of women in all disciplines and across all employment sectors.

Our core mission:  To increase female participation in the economic opportunities of the industry. 

We are partnering with companies committed to an inclusive culture were women can thrive. Through our educational efforts we support women and girls in the growing market for talent, with programs from Kindergarten to Career.

Our Women And Drones Jobs Board is balancing the gender equation by connecting companies with women to fill open positions.  Our goal is to inspire and support more women to pursue careers in STEM and aviation.

Why we focus on women and girls?

It’s simple, many studies including research by Microsoft indicates: “Girls who have STEM role models are 1.4 times more likely to pursue opportunities within these fields, yet only 40% of girls say they have a role model in STEM.  If we want to see more girls in STEM, it’s OUR responsibility to inspire them.”
