Women of Commercial Drones serves as a forum to come together to discuss challenges, share achievements and collaborate on ways to help mentor professionals and younger generations of women.

 

Commercial drone development and sales are on the rise, but the number of women in leadership positions, whether in the drone industry or more generally in technology, is not. With a specific focus on women interested in commercial enterprise/business with drones, we want to encourage women to be bold in pursuit of their careers in this market. The commercial drone industry will benefit as a result of increased gender diversity. Let's elevate the conversation and have some fun supporting each other!

 

 

 

We work through the challenges of commercial drone operations to grow the industry and make it accessible to all. We are passionate about helping women to succeed in this industry.

 

Building on discussions starting at recent Commercial Drone trade shows, Gretchen West, Senior Advisor at Hogan Lovells, Lisa Ellman, Partner at Hogan Lovells and Dyan Gibbens, CEO and Founder of TrumbullUnmanned decided to capitalize on this momentum and create an organization to more formally move the conversation forward. This trio has a strong passion for working through the challenges of commercial drone operations to grow the industry and make it accessible to all. They are passionate about helping women to succeed in this industry.
 
Gretchen and Lisa also are co-executive directors of the Commercial Drone Alliance, an independent non-profit founded to enable commercial end user enterprises around the world integrate drones into business operations. Dyan also has founded and organized free Drone Camps for underrepresented youth and supports STEM events on energy and environmental initiatives.
