In fields that are male-dominated, it is often challenging for women and underrepresented genders to gain the confidence to speak up. Women in Geospatial+ is a professional network that works to promote gender equality in the Geospatial Industry. Together with Geovation, they have invited the Group on Earth Observations to join a live webinar to promote strategies and tactics for women in Earth observations and GIS to gain professional confidence.
In this upcoming webinar you will hear from successful women and men in the geospatial field talking about their career journeys, including tips for how to become successful. They will discuss how they found their voice and confidence to speak, how they struggled along the way, and what they did to help them eventually make it. They will speak of their various different approaches for rising in the geospatial field as a woman to help encourage other individuals of underrepresented genders gain the confidence to increase the diversity in the geospatial and other career fields.
Join us on July 8, 2020 4pm CEST for an interactive panel discussion. Register here.
Featured speakers will include:
Denise McKenzie, the Director of Benchmarkinitiative and Geovation, and board member of the AGI GeoCommunity, Location Based Marketing Association, and Women in Geospatial. She tweets as @SpatialRed.
