Innovation and Digital Technologies: Empowering Women through Drones and Education

Societies are shifting towards innovation and knowledge based models of prosperity, powered by qualified and diversified human capital. Children (of both sexes) should be equipped for the future and engagement of girls in STEM is crucial from primary school to tertiary education. Gender bias begins in primary school, including girls’ perceptions around their future in a STEM career. In this special session of Drones Synergies Outreach program, join Elena Buenrostro, Founder of Women Who Drone (USA) - an online platform and community that inspires, educates and empowers women and girls with drone technology. They will demonstrate that it is never late to start a drones career and how Women Who Drone helps women/girls all around the world to embrace innovation and technology via drones. Joining the talk is Paul Mead- Managing Director for She Maps - an Australian initiative to create and deliver programs that bring the magic of drones and geospatial technology into the hands of students as young as 10 years old- exposes how She Maps help youngsters understand that STEM careers are diverse, exciting and there are opportunities available for all.
