For Women by Women

About Women And Drones

Women And Drones is the leading organization dedicated to driving excellence in the unmanned industry by achieving equity and participation of women in all disciplines and across all employment sectors.  Through WomenAndDrones.com and social media as well as participation in international drone conference events, Women And Drones is connecting, highlighting and growing female participation in the industry.

Women And Drones educational and outreach efforts include books and programs for children, especially girls, to encourage interest in drone technology and other STEM subjects.

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.”  

We want to inspire and support more females to pursue careers and opportunities in STEM and aviation
