I'm working with a colleague to set up a local meetup for women in Spatial Science on GIS Day this year.
It's not just for women. If you're a male GIS professional interested in promoting gender balance in the industry, please join us. The reason I'm inspired to give this meetup a women-in-GIS focus is because our industry isn't particularly gender-balanced. Depending on which survey you read, women make up about ~45% of the industry. In developer and managerial roles, it's more like 20%.
