Nominations now open

March 8, 2017

In celebration of International Women's Day, Women and Drones, in partnership with Drone360 magazine (hey, that's us!), is announcing a global search for women impacting the drone industry.

The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186. This is too long to wait. The emerging UAV industry is full of inspiring women shaping its future, and this Women to Watch Award is designed to acknowledge and motivate women who are driving change and leading a new industry closer to gender parity.

The Women to Watch Award is open to women from all over the world who are impacting the drone industry through achievements in technology, business, governmental relations, advocacy, education, research, journalism, agriculture, and more. Nominations can be submitted online at WomenAndDrones.com. Submissions will be accepted until May 15.

“The drone industry is driven by innovation and intelligence. On International Women’s Day, we’re proud to join millions who will Be Bold for Change and encourage women and girls to achieve their ambitions,” said Sharon Rossmark, COO of AeroVista Innovations and founder of Women and Drones.
