What we're about

SWIGGIS is a professional and social organization. Our meetings provide women geographers with a positive and productive space as well as a supportive and engaging environment in which we mentor each other, enhance our intellectual climate, and are innovative in our strategies to promote the professional status of women in Geography and GIS. Our goal is to meet monthly, and our meetings will be scheduled alternatively as educational sessions and social happy hours.

Social Hours are available to everyone, but workshop Professional Development events are open to active SWIGGIS Members only.

Signing up to the meetup site does not ensure your membership. (see link below for membership details)
