Women in GIS

Log in

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. Our aim is to help women start and navigate their geospatial careers.

If you’d like to join us, add yourself to the Women in GIS story map (below or here). This Story Map, and the WiGIS organization, were inspired by a Story Map created by Linda Loubert in 2014 for Women's History Month. Her aim was to recognize women in GIS fields.

If you’re on LinkedIn, join our group: Women in GIS, managed by long time GIS professional Caitlin Dempsey of GISLounge.

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.
