Supporting women in the drone industry shouldn’t be about playing a numbers game—how many women you have employed—but rather about developing a supportive, inclusive framework that will attract and keep qualified women in the field by providing paths that can lead to growth and success not only for them but for the industry as well. But what does it mean to support and be inclusive of women in this space, and what does that support actually look like? Join us for free at Commercial UAV Expo Americas' Virtual Women in Drones Panel, Wednesday Sep 16, 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM PDT, to join the discussion. You can Register here.
This is the next installment in a multi-part series that helps to reimagine what a professional in the drone space can look like, and more.
Mélanie Guittet is the Chief Business Development Officer and Co-Founder of INVOLI, a company that specializes in building the UTM infrastructure for safe integration into the national and global airspace. INVOLI’s work has enabled key stakeholders to get a clear picture of air traffic in the airspace and devise low-risk, secure flight plans for their operations, which has made INVOLI a major player in building and testing the unmanned traffic management programs of the future. Their work in programs like the 5G!Drones Project are establishing important metrics and standardizations that are helping to define the drone ecosystem.
Commercial UAV News spoke with Guittet about how INVOLI got started, her role in the drone industry, what she looks forward to in the coming years, and much more.
