Community Building

We bring people of the geospatial industry and academia together.

To do this, we use different communication media: a mailing list, a Slack community, Twitter and a LinkedIn page.

Events

During geospatial events and conferences, we run Women in Geospatial sessions where we have talks and panel discussions on career advice, geospatial skills and leadership.

We also organise informal get-togethers and meet for a meal at the end of a conference day.

Career Mentorship

In October 2019, we launched the first edition of our Women in Geospatial career mentorship programme.

This is a year-long programme that brings together people who want to develop professional skills for a geospatial career.
