Welcome to Women in GIS*.

Or WiGIS, as we like to refer to ourselves.

We are a group of women banding together for support and encouragement. If you’d like to join us, add yourself to the Women in GIS story map. If you’re on LinkedIn, join our group: Women in GIS, managed by long time GIS professional Caitlin Dempsey of GISLounge. You can also join our listserve by filling out this handy little form.

What you’ll find here

Each quarter, we’ll feature a great woman working in the geospatial industry with our Spotlight interview series. In addition, well make our presence known at conferences like CalGIS and ESRIs UCs. We also plan to host a number of online resources women might find useful to start or navigate their GIS career.
