WA Women in GIS & Technology.
The Washington Women in GIS and Technology (WWGT) group empowers women to learn, teach, and promote GIS and technology. WWGT’s mission is to further efforts of women in GIS and technology professions in Washington State through the following strategies:
Meet monthly to engage in networking, educational and social opportunities.
Provide mentoring and career support through meeting topics and one on one member and professional connections.
Further skills development with meeting activities such as lightning talks, software mini trainings, tips and tricks and business skills presentations.
Support the education of GIS and technology through volunteering, presentations and teaching technical subjects in schools and to community groups.
The WWGT group was created for women working in GIS and technology to meet, network, brainstorm and learn from one another. The group includes GIS students and professionals across all skills levels and disciplines. We meet monthly around Puget Sound to network and share ideas, industry information, experience, and advice. The group is open to everyone and we welcome new faces.
