NEARC has announced the new Women in GIS (WiGIS) Northeast Chapter!
Women in GIS is an inclusive group of women and allies coming together to provide support, resources, and opportunities for success as you navigate your geospatial career. Everyone is welcome here.
Women in GIS Chapters are a great way for women and allies to come together in a specific state, region, or area. NEARC is excited to announce the formation of the Women in GIS Northeast Chapter!
