State GIS group launches 'GeoWomen' to promote diversity in geospatial tech
from State Scoop
Nearly a year after hiring Molly Schar as its first executive director, the National States Geographic Information Council launched an advocacy program encouraging women to pursue careers in geospatial information systems. Dubbed GeoWomen, the group spawned from discussions at the NSGIC 2016 Annual Conference in Indianapolis and officially formed at the 2017 midyear meeting in Annapolis. The group was formed to bring attention to the lack of women in GIS and advocate for increased involvement.
