Real Reason Women are Missing from the Drone Industry?

We see it all over the tech sector: Women are vastly underrepresented. There are fewer female drone pilots, programmers, and product designers. We see similar trends in the tech field at large. While the drone industry is not synonymous with the technology sector, much of what we do in with UAVs is tech-related – software

We see it all over the tech sector: Women are vastly underrepresented. There are fewer female drone pilots, programmers, and product designers. We see similar trends in the tech field at large. While the drone industry is not synonymous with the technology sector, much of what we do in with UAVs is tech-related – software development, engineering and robotics, and so on – so these stats are very relevant:

  • Apple reports that while their hiring of Hispanics and blacks has gone up, men dominate the company’s employee roll.
  • Statista reports that women hold between 10-20% of all tech jobs, yet women hold about half of all non-tech jobs in the technology sector.
  • While 57% of all undergraduate students at the college level are women, only 14% of those in computer science degrees are female.

What gives? Why are women so absent from our field? We want to know. Tell us why you think women are missing from the drone sector by taking our survey below.
