Women+ in Geospatial Webinar – IWD

  • Date : 8 - March - 2023
  • Time : 8-9:30 am GMT
  • Address : Online

Join us in celebrating all that is great about diversity in the Geospatial Community on International Women’s Day. The W+G network has grown considerably over the last 4 years and always we want to Inspire, Unite and Empower our community.

The global theme for this year’s IWD is Embrace Equity.

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity. (

During the event, you will hear the career journeys of some of our great female leaders and innovators in the geospatial industry and a panel exploring what positive actions we can all take to support diversity and a gender-equal world.
