Chicago, IL June 21, 2022 – Women and Drones and Qii.AI, the industry leader in drone-captured data visualization technology, announced today a new strategic alliance to support diversity and inclusion within the drone industry and the broader community.
“Inclusivity is in the core of the future of AI. We are thrilled to be Women and Drones’ corporate partner for AI and AR initiatives, to create a more diverse and inclusive future for AI and AR in the drone industry,” says Naya Choi, Director of Marketing at Qii.AI. She adds that women are less likely to participate in the industry. “As a deep tech start-up, we consistently see under-representation of women within our applicant pools. We want to help change that – the partnership with Women and Drones is a first step in that direction. We’re really honored and excited to be working with Women and Drones towards such worthwhile goals.”
Women and Drones offers female-focused educational programs ranging from kindergarten to career. The ongoing mission includes balancing the gender equation in the industry by inspiring and helping more women to pursue careers in STEM and aviation. According to Women and Drones Chief Strategist Kimberly Penn, “We’re very much looking forward to creating AI-first initiatives with the terrific people at Qii.AI. Together, we will help inspire and support women pursuing careers in the drone industry, where like everywhere else, Artificial Intelligence is going to play an increasingly important role. We think Qii.AI is an ideal partner to help us reach those parts of our audience.”
