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.
No series about gender parity and building opportunities for women in the drone industry would be complete without talking to Sharon Rossmark, Founder and CEO of Women and Drones. Sharon’s drive to help businesses and individuals develop a pipeline for women to thrive in the industry has helped define what growth in the industry can and should mean. From providing valuable resources and networking opportunities and highlighting the accomplishments of many qualified professionals in the industry through the Woman and Drones website to supporting educating young girls in STEM, Rossmark has been a champion and role model for many within the industry.
Commercial UAV News sat down with Rossmark to discuss her experience and ideas further in this next installment of Supporting Women in Drones.
