About the Women to Watch Global Awards

The Women to Watch Global Awards (WTW) initiative recognizes women who are making significant contributions to the drone industry. Their contributions include inspiring innovations and solutions, leading people, and companies, promoting other women in leadership positions, positively shaping the public perceptions of drones, empowering more women to enter the industry as well as advocating for more inclusive practices in STEM.

Individual Awards:

The individual award is designed to acknowledge and inspire women who are driving change and leading the drone industry closer to gender parity. In creating this recognition, we aim to raise the profile of women doing amazing work and to encourage more women to embrace UAS technology.

Company Awards:

The company awards acknowledge organizations that in their pursuit of excellence, embrace diversity and have a culture of inclusiveness where women are engaged in key roles on the team and/or are in leadership positions of the organization.
