NETWORK, INNOVATE AND INSPIRE
Women in GIS initiative is a non-profit organization that was founded on the basis of creating a community of visionary women in Geospatial Technlogy to bridge the gender divide in use of this technology as well as celebrate great strides made by women in GIS and encourage women/girls involvement in the field. We seek to build a community of innovators and create a network of talented individuals who can help use their technical geospatial skills for social good and causes.
Women in GIS is currently operating in Kenya, with the vision of expanding throughout the East African region to bring on board entire communities. We do this work through three main platforms: Networking Events, Knowledge Transfer sessions and Mentorship Programs.
